This classic hummus recipe couldn't be easier—just toss a few ingredients in the food processor and whir away! Aquafaba (the liquid from a can of chickpeas) makes this healthy dip extra smooth and creamy. Serve with veggie chips, pita chips or crudités.

Sooo much better then store bought. Simple to make, the best hummus I have had and my co-works love it. I make it every week for them.

Oh My!! This is so simple and fun to make and so very good. I reduced the cumin to 1/2 teaspoon, besides that followed the recipe. Delish!!

This hummus is incredibly good! The only change I made was to use dried garbanzo beans that I had cooked myself. I will make this regularly.

I've made hummus many times but this seemed to be my best batch. I simmered my chickpeas for 30 minutes to make them softer and to have them warm while making the hummus. This makes them creamy and smooth. This was an absolutely delicious batch of hummus. My son and I finished it off in 3 days. So here I am again but going to double the batch this time so I can share some with my mom. Very simple & quick too.

I love this recipe. Simple and tasty. I've put 3 small garlic cloves instead of 1 and used organic tahini. I'd forgotten how good homemade humus was. Won't go back to store-bought humus.

Love how easy this hummus recipe is. I've tried it with sunflower seed butter in place of the tahini and it tastes great.
