Oil & Salt Free Hummus

My quest for a great tasting hummus recipe that doesn’t use copious amounts of oil and salt has been a long one. But here I will share with you my latest recipe that my family and I are very happy with!


  • 2 cans unsalted chickpeas
  • liquid from one of the cans of chickpeas
  • 1/2 cup raw, unsalted cashews (optional)
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 Tbsp Braggs liquid amino acids
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
  •  a little less than 1/4 cup tahini

Add all ingredients into blender and blend until smooth.

One serving 3-4 Tablespoons: about 100 calories

    Loved the hummus! I tried adding some miso broth concentrate and it added a bit more flavor. I recently discovered your show. I was looking for a nutritarian cooking show so was very excited to find you. I will be checking back regularly to try new recipes. Thank you!

    I like the recipes but I would like to see the nutrional information listed with them.

      That is one of the things that we are going to try to include on the website soon. 😊


  3. I didn’t have two cans of chickpeas, so I subbed with a single can of great northern white beans instead. Turned out great. We both really enjoyed this recipe.

    I have tried several of your recipes and they all turned out great. I hope to see you adding many more recipes. This Hummus is by far the best Hummus I have made. Thank you.

    This is the best oil free hummus I’ve made. I am taking this to a NYE party and wanted to flavor it for a crowd pleasing dip. I choose to go with an Indian flair and added before blending: 2 additional cloves of garlic, 1 t Garam Masala,, 1 t chili paste (add more if want spicy), 1/2 t cumin, 1/4 t tumeric & a generous amount of black pepper. Delicious! Thank you.

      I buy either Woodstock Organic Tahini http://amzn.to/2Dr9WhZ , usually from whole foods or 365 Tahini from Kroger.

    Your Hummus recipe is delish. It’s my favorite of all time. A batch lasts about 5 days for my husband and I.
    Love your videos.

      I’m so glad you are happy with it!

    Followed the recipe. It’s tasty, but I can really taste the Liquid Aminos. How can I tame that? More Lemon Juice?


    1. Jill Dalton says:

      That will probably help
