Healthy oil-free & tahini-free hummus, made with ease in a matter of minutes!  It is super-creamy (thanks to a key ingredient), high in protein, and 100% delicious.



  • 1 15-ounce can chickpeas , drained, reserve the canning liquid
  • 2 teaspoons finely grated lemon zest
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 cloves garlic, mashed
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • fine sea salt and ground black pepper to taste
  • Optional: sumac or paprika


  1. In a food processor, process the chickpeas (not the liquid!), lemon zest, lemon juice, and cumin until well blended (stop and scrape down bowl as needed).
  2. With motor running, slowly drizzle in canning liquid, a little at a time, until very smooth and creamy (stop and scrape down bowl once or twice). Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  3. Transfer to a small serving bowl and sprinkle with sumac or paprika, if desired.
