This 5 minute hummus recipe is all about efficiency and maximum amount of flavour. You need one main ingredient, you guessed it – chickpeas and the rest are optional and can easily be replaced with what you currently have on hand.
You can skip the garlic, however if you do use it, I suggest roasting first – it gives off a nice mild sweet taste, rather than using a raw garlic which is less mild and more overpowering.
When it comes to spices, I like to combine spicy, salty, peppery and tangy flavours to my hummus. However, as I mention above you can use whatever spices you like and currently have. I also used nutritional yeast because it gives the humus a nice cheesy kick. I added tahini to this recipe for a nice rich texture. If you want to skip the tahini then you can sub by simply adding more water.
You can make a double batch and store in the fridge for up to 1 week.
