Homemade Hummus (Tahini-free)

I’d like to share a recipe we made this week in a kid’s cooking class at Marcel’s in Glen Ellyn.  There were 14 kids ages 8-12 making some really yummy (& healthy) snacks.  Wow, did we have fun!  Homemade Hummus is super easy to make and has a great smooth, clean taste.  About half of the kids had tried hummus before, but this was the first time they made their own.  Now you can make it, too!

Tahini-free Hummus (makes 4- ¼ cup snack servings)

1 (15 ounce) can chickpeas, drained

2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

¼ cup olive oil

1 clove garlic, minced

Dash of smoked paprika

Put all ingredients into a food processor and blend until smooth.  Chill in a covered container for 20 minutes.  Serve with fresh vegetables like carrot sticks or sugar snap peas; with whole grain pita chips; or as Greek Style Hummus Dip.

Later this week, I will post the recipe for an easy lunch pita we made with Homemade Hummus.

  1. This is the recipe I use for hummus when I make that delish layered hummus dip! The only change I made was to add a roasted red pepper from a jar. YUM!!
