I hope you like spicy hummus! While I like milder flavors, I am a sucker for the ones that make my nose sweat, like Spicy Hummus with Chipotle Peppers. Since the hummus food trend started several years ago, I jumped on the bandwagon. Justifying the fact that hummus is a healthier snack option, I could take down an entire container in one sitting. Don’t judge, okay?
At $5 a pop, I had to start making my own. Homemade hummus is really simple to make and the base recipe of tahini (sesame paste), chickpeas and olive oil can be made into unlimited flavors. Use the same base to make garlic, roasted red pepper or carrot flavored hummus.
There is something about homemade hummus that I just love. You can combine whatever flavors you want and they all turn out pretty great. This shows you exactly how to make hummus step by step in 10 minutes and under. You pretty much throw everything into the food processor and blend it until smooth. Easy peasy!
Hummus can be made ahead of time and stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week. Who says it will even last that long with how great it is?! Since you are making it fresh, the shelf life isn’t as long but it is even healthier without all those additives and preservatives.
The only special equipment you will need is a food processor, but you can get a small one and work in batches. I serve mine with pita chips, homemade tortilla chips or whole wheat flatbreads. Also use hummus on flatbread, or sandwiches!
