For those of us who don’t use added oils in our cooking, it can be difficult to find a brand of store bought hummus without oil. Sure, there are a few brands but they are usually at specialty stores and they are expensive.
Thankfully, making hummus is really easy. I recommend using a food processor or high powered blender to get a smooth hummus.
Oil-free hummus may not be traditional but you can make hummus without oil. It’s not a deal breaker. Oil-free hummus is a great way to enjoy all your favorite raw veggies. I don’t know about you, but I can eat way more veggies when I have a delicious dip.
For me, chickpeas are the most important part of hummus. You can use canned chickpeas or cook chickpeas yourself. The benefit of making them yourself is that you control the whole process. The best creamy hummus is made from chickpeas that are cooked until they are soft. I like to cook chickpeas in the Instant Pot.
My favorite chickpeas are Palouse Brand. Yes, you can taste the difference! Yes, it’s worth the price. Palouse Brand chickpeas are non-GMO. They even come with a tracking code so you can track them back to the field they were grown in.
