Pick Your Perfect Organic Hummus Recipe

Note that the instructions for making any kind of hummus are the same. You put the ingredients in a blender or food processor and blend until smooth. If you want to get more dip than a hummus, add some type of liquid to achieve the desired consistency. When using canned beans/chickpeas, use liquid from the beans. Otherwise, use broth or the liquid beans were boiled in. You can also go with plain filtered water in a pinch.

What to Do When You Find the Best Organic Hummus Recipe

There are many ways to enjoy hummus that go beyond using it as a vegan substitute for butter on sandwiches. The most popular ones include:

  • Dip for chips or vegetables.
    This would be one of the best healthy vegan recipes for surprise guests and unexpected parties. With some chilled hummus in the fridge, you’ll only need to chop veggies and make some chips. You can add more liquid to the already prepared hummus at any time.
  • Substitute for mayo in wraps.
    Basically, hummus is the perfect vegan mayo and you can make it as thick as you need. Add some mustard seeds to get the necessary ‘bite’ to the regular chickpea + lemon juice and garlic mix.
  • Salad dressing.
    You’ll need to add quite a bit more water for this one, but it’ll be a fantastic addition to salads with lettuce and cucumbers. Spicy hummus seasoning will not only enrich the taste of the dish, it’ll boost its nutritional value. Use it in your vegan superfood salad.
