What I love about this hummus is that it’s…

  • Super healthy
  • Perfect for snacking
  • Easily transportable for picnics
  • Bursting with flavor
  • A great sandwich or wrap spread
  • Amazingly delicious

We have no-oil vegan hummus in our refrigerator most of the time to use as a dip and sandwich/veggie wrap spread.

Even when we go on road trips, we carry a small lunchbox cooler with this stuff.

What is hummus made of?

There are so many different varieties of hummus, and most often it is made with a base of chickpeas (or garbanzo beans) and a handful of other ingredients that are just blended together in a food processor or blender. Hummus base ingredients include:

  • chickpeas (garbanzo beans or edamame)
  • garlic cloves
  • tahini (crushed sesame seeds) optional
  • vegetable broth
  • lemon juice
  • salt

How to make roasted red pepper hummus

If using canned beans, drain and rinse them first.

Place chickpeas, roasted red peppers, green onions, lemon juice, tahini, garlic, vegetable broth, cumin, salt, and pepper in a blender or food processor.

The recipe card at the bottom of the page has the full list of ingredients with measurements and instructions.

Blend until smooth. I like to leave mine a little chunky. The longer blended, the smoother it will be.

Serve with sliced vegetables like carrots, cucumbers, broccoli, celery, bell peppers, and pita bread. It is also excellent as a sandwich or a wrap spread. Link to Veggies in a Blanket below. Store in the refrigerator in a covered container for up to 10 days.

Can you freeze hummus?

This hummus lasts approximately 7-10 days in a tightly sealed container in the refrigerator.

Hummus even freezes well in an airtight container for up to 6-8 months. The day before you want to eat it, move the hummus container from the freezer to the refrigerator. It takes at least a few hours to thaw until it’s ready to eat. Thawing can take longer depending on how much is in your container.

It’s best to freeze hummus in small portions to make defrosting quicker and to have handy small amounts to eat in one sitting.

So many people ask about easy go-to snacks, and this hummus is one of my favorites. In the summer, we go boating at the lake a lot. That means picnic-friendly foods, and this hummus is a great option. It’s usually accompanied by Smashed Chickpea Avocado Sandwiches.
