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.

Jill Dalton June 6, 2017 - 9:12 pm

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

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.

Jack August 28, 2017 - 7:28 am

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.

Jill Dalton August 28, 2017 - 2:26 pm

Thank you Jack🤗

Monica August 28, 2017 - 5:41 pm

I just made this Hummus and it is seriously so delicious the best I’ve ever mad at home!!! Thank You Jill it will be my all time favorite from now on.

Chris October 13, 2017 - 7:28 pm

Tried this recipe today and couldn’t be happier. It was easy to make and is so delicious!! Thank you so much. This will be my go to recipe from now on. 🙂

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.

Hi Jill! Have a question…where do buy your tahini from, what brand and is it oil free?
Very recently me and my husband have started to adapt this lifestyle..and watching your videos…Thank you for all your effort and sharing it with us..

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

Angeline C January 19, 2018 - 11:41 pm

Thank you!

Kaylee February 23, 2018 - 12:51 pm

This is absolutely delicious! The only thing I would change is the serving size! 😉 It is sooo good!

tony davies March 9, 2018 - 11:56 am

oh my goodness !!! just made this tastes better than any store bought ,thank you so much for sharing your amazing recipes

Susan May 5, 2018 - 2:08 am

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!

Jeff May 14, 2018 - 6:26 pm

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

Jill Dalton May 14, 2018 - 8:42 pm

That will probably help

Wdrd_crystl@yahoo.com June 20, 2018 - 3:06 pm

Can you use something besides Braggs aminos acid

Jill Dalton June 24, 2018 - 8:50 am

You can use low sodium soy sauce, tamari, or coconut aminos =)

MaryB January 12, 2021 - 11:53 am

I don’t use those. Bensin’s Table Tasty is my salt substitute. Would that work?

Jill Dalton January 13, 2021 - 9:18 am


Rebecca Bozeman August 17, 2018 - 5:29 pm

Just made the hummus and it is sooooooooo delicious! I swapped the Amino Acids with organic soy sauce and only had a can and a half of garbanzo beans. Will never buy store bought hummus again! Thank you Jill!

Eamon Hurley September 21, 2018 - 10:36 am

forgot the cashews , still tasted great , thanks

FB October 20, 2018 - 7:06 pm

Hi Jill, I learnt this from an indian chef but as always its up to teh individual taste I added some light coloured sesame seeds and black pepper to your recipe, Thanks FB

Kirsten October 21, 2018 - 5:46 pm

Hi, I love your videos! I have a son that is allergic to nuts? Any suggestions to replace the cashews?

Jill Dalton October 22, 2018 - 8:41 am

You can just omit them =)

Melissa Ratisher October 29, 2018 - 1:53 pm

I just made this recipe, it’s delicious! I’ve made lots of hummus before, but there is always added oil, so this is a great help as I am moving into my nutritarian lifestyle. I halved the recipe, but then absentmindedly added too much lemon and tahini, but it still came out great. I added a bunch of black pepper and some cayenne pepper as well. This recipe is a keeper, thanks Jill!

Parker February 10, 2019 - 1:27 pm

Thanks Jill! Love your YouTube channel and your recipes. Just risked an ice storm (I was out of tahini) to make this recipe…and all is good in the world. Great recipe.

Teresa March 7, 2019 - 12:23 pm

Congrats on a totally awesome channel, my favorite so far! Keep up your excellent energy, I’m appreciate 😊😁🌺

Christina March 25, 2019 - 5:30 pm

Mine got “hard” after a day, and became clumpy and hard to stir. I did omit the cashews, and the beans and water were hot from cooking when I was mixing them in the Vitamix. Any ideas as to why mine turned out this way?

Also, I’m using beans I cook myself. What’s the ratio of beans to water? Maybe that’s my problem.

Jill Dalton March 26, 2019 - 8:48 am

I find that when I blend the chickpeas when they are hot they get really pasty and dry. Try waiting until they are cool. =)

Summer Duffy May 13, 2019 - 8:14 am

I would love to know where you buy your cashews? I’ve been searching for the most adorable price! TIA

Jill Dalton May 13, 2019 - 8:44 am

I buy mine from Trader Joe’s

Christine June 1, 2019 - 2:29 pm

This is great hummus that can compete with any store-bought hummus. I love it because it’s oil-free and my son loves it because it just tastes that good!

Fidolina Tucker June 7, 2019 - 9:08 pm

Hi Jill, love your recipes. I placed3 can of garbanzo. After following your recipe I split it in 1/2 added a small green jalapeño and 3 small avocados and 1/2 lemon juice and 1 bunch of cilantro.
To the other 1/2 I added a bottle of roasted red peppers and 2 red jalapeños and a tsp o chili flakes. Both turned out delicious.

Heike Kelly January 30, 2022 - 12:20 pm

I cook my own garbanzo beans according to your recipe in the instant pot. How do I get the liquid for this recipe if the beans are home cooked not caned beans?

Jill Dalton January 30, 2022 - 1:21 pm

You can just add a bit of water. When I cook my beans, I usually add a bit of the cook water to the container before freezing them.

Kathy March 26, 2022 - 10:41 am

I’m going to try this recipe. I’ve been looking for a good oil free hummus. I really like Red Pepper Hummus, do you think I could add a few roasted red peppers to this recipe and it would taste good? Thanks

Jill Dalton March 28, 2022 - 9:48 am

Absolutely, it would be delicious!

Bonnie Fredrick August 7, 2023 - 10:45 pm

What is the size of a serving? Too easy to eat too much!

Jill Dalton August 8, 2023 - 4:06 pm

About a 1/3 cup
