HUMMUS WITHOUT TAHINI
This hummus recipe without tahini is super flavorful and to be quite honest I don't miss the tahini in it at ALL!
I actually really do love the flavor of tahini but it's not always something I have on hand.
But you really can still make flavorful hummus without it...
BONUS TIP- tahini makes some awesome salad dressings!
TIPS FOR MAKING THE BEST HUMMUS
If you're really into the ultra creaminess of hummus then you'll want to take the extra time to remove the skins from the chickpeas...
Not necessarily something you have to do but it does make a difference.
If I'm short on time or in a hurry I'll skip this step.
When adding water to the hummus you'll want to make sure it cold water- I'll usually just have a bowl of ice water handy to add till I get my desired creaminess.
At this point you could add a little more water if you want it ultra creamy OR serve as is with some toppings of course! Still delish!
Store in an airtight container in the fridge for 4-5 days.
For longer storage you can freeze hummus in an airtight freezer bag for 2-3 months.
Thaw in fridge prior to serving!
IS HUMMUS VEGAN?
Most hummus is naturally vegan and gluten-free.
Although if you buy it make sure to read the ingredients since it could vary based on toppings.
