My homemade roasted garlic hummus without tahini recipe is one that you’ll want to keep on hand for serving on game day or for a healthy snack. This hummus is creamy, simple to make, and made with ingredients that you probably already have. It’s also gluten free, dairy free and vegan friendly.
No tahini? No problem! Traditional hummus is made with tahini but I found that whenever I want to make hummus, I never have it on hand. It’s just not something I normally have in my pantry. I came up with this roasted garlic hummus recipe to solve that problem and I’m here to say it’s just as good, if not better, than any store-bought hummus I’ve ever had.
I love to make this homemade roasted garlic hummus for an easy appetizer. It makes for a fantastic dip or spread that can be set out and devoured without much effort. I’ll go over serving suggestions later in the post but one of my favorite ways to eat this hummus is as a spread in my Easy Veggie Hummus Sandwich recipe.
Ingredients in Roasted Garlic Hummus Without Tahini
Like I mentioned, there isn’t tahini in this hummus but there are a few simple ingredients that go into this tasty and flavorful dip that you might be surprised by.
Roasted garlic: Roasted garlic is my favorite way to use garlic. It brings the flavor of this hummus to the next level.
Olive oil: The olive oil is blended in the hummus and also drizzled on the top.
Unsalted raw cashew butter: Cashew butter adds to the creamy and smooth texture to this hummus.
Chickpeas: We use canned chickpeas in this recipe;
Lemon juice: I recommend using fresh squeezed lemon juice for the freshest taste. Store-bought lemon juice is not the same, in my opinion, and always lacks in the flavor department.
Ground cumin: Hummus without ground cumin, is just, not the best. Take it from me, add the cumin and you won’t regret it.
Salt and pepper: you can adjust to your taste preference.
How to make Roasted Garlic Hummus Without Tahini
Step 1: First, prepare the roasted garlic by following the steps outlined in my How To Make Roasted Garlic post.
Step 2: Next, drain the chickpeas and pour into the food processor. Add the rest of the ingredients, including the roasted garlic, and blend on high until hummus is creamy in texture. Feel free to adjust the salt, pepper and lemon to your own taste. That’s it!
Optional Hummus Garnishes:
- Drizzle with olive oil
- Top with roasted whole chickpeas
- Sprinkle regular or smoked paprika
- Top with minced garlic for an extra garlic experience
How To Serve Hummus
My favorite way to eat roasted garlic hummus is as an appetizer with veggies like carrots, bell peppers, radishes, and cucumbers.
You can also use it as a dip for crackers or even spread over a sandwich as an alternative to mayo.
How Long Will This Roasted Garlic Hummus Last?
It will last up to 4 days in the refrigerator. Make sure to store it in an airtight container. Whenever I make this hummus though, it disappears pretty quick because both my husband and I love it so much.
