Oil-Free Blender Hummus (Gluten Free, Vegan)

If you’re as much of a hummus addict as I am then you probably go through a lot of tubs of hummus (which can be pricey) during the week.

I’ve dabbled with plenty of hummus recipes over the last year in a bid to save money but have never found a good enough recipe (especially one that doesn’t require a food processor).

This recipe is really easy and you can add whatever spices you like or even roasted red peppers or beetroot. I made it oil-free as I know a lot of you like to cook without oil.

This hummus is a great toast topper, perfect for dipping veggies or pitta into and is a nice side option for meals.


  • 1 tin of Chickpeas
  • 2 tbsp Light Tahini
  • 50ml Lemon Juice
  • 4tbsp Water
  • 1tsp Garlic granules
  • 1tsp Sea/Himalayan salt
  • 1/4tsp Ground Cumin


  1. First up and probably the most important step for a smooth hummus is to rinse and de-skin the chickpeas. Simply rub the chickpeas between your hands under running water to remove the skins. This may take a few minutes but it is worth it and also helps to reduce the bloat.
  2. Add the chickpeas and the rest of the ingredients to your blender.
  3. Pulse for 10 seconds and scrape down the blender. Blend for a further 30 seconds, continuing to scrape down as needed. Feel free to add more water or oil if you would prefer.
  4. Transfer your hummus to an airtight container and top with some smoked paprika and seeds.
  5. Keep refrigerated for up to 5 days.
