Have you ever opened a $6 tub of grocery store hummus, and thought “I could make this”? Homemade hummus shouldn’t be a chore, people! 

Friends, I’m here today with a simple recipe for the tastiest darn homemade hummus you can make yourself.

If you love spicy flavors and hummus, you should check out this Buffalo Hummus recipe.

If you found yourself saying “what is sumac” when looking at the ingredients list, you’re not alone. I said that the first time someone recommended this spice to me for hummus.  

It’s available at well-appointed grocery stores or on Amazon. If you can’t find it, dial up the smoked paprika a bit, and put a teeny pinch of cayenne pepper in instead of the sumac.

Pro Tips/Recipe Notes:

  • Homemade garlic hummus can be stored in the fridge for up to a week, or in the freezer for 4-5 months.
  • Tahini can usually be found near the peanut butter in the grocery store. Use extras to make this Lemon Tahini Salad dressing.
  • You can leave out the tahini if you’d like but it will change the texture and taste of the finished product.
  • If raw garlic is a bit much for you, roasted garlic might be right up your alley. Check out my Air Fryer Roasted Garlic and Instant Pot Roasted Garlic for various techniques.
  • Instead of canned garbanzo beans, try making chickpeas in the Instant Pot.
  • The recipe below is mine, but it was inspired by The Homemade Pantry.

  1. Question… what is the best way to thaw the hummus from the freezer?

    • I leave it on the counter for a few hours or in the fridge overnight. I tend to freeze it in smaller mason jars (4 oz) so that it thaws faster.

  2. So good. I’ve tried several different hummus recipes and haven’t been pleased until now. This recipe is a keeper. So fast to make and so delicious. I’m currently still on the last step “make a fool of yourself while you devour it”…not sure there will be any left for hubby when he gets home from work! 

  3. I made this in MINUTES with some random chickpeas and tahini in the pantry. Plus I used our frozen garlic “pucks” from another one of Sarah’s posts.

    This was so easy and so much cheaper than buying hummus at the store! Why did it take so long for me to try this for myself?

    • I can’t believe you guys haven’t used up all those garlic pucks yet! 🙂

      If you have any leftover hummus, it does freezer really well.

  4. I’m very excited about trying this! Thanks for sharing!

  5. Delicious 

  6. I love hummus and smoked paprika. I am not sure why I never combined them before.
