Store-bought hummus is great. Let’s be honest. We all need a little convenience. But for those times when you realize you have run out of hummus and still have a drawerful of veggies to eat, check your pantry for chickpeas and go for making your own!

I try to stay in the habit of purchasing a couple cans of different beans each week when I make our grocery store runs so that I’m always certain to always have a quick, healthy snack on hand like this homemade hummus or even like this White Bean Dip.

Easy 3-Minute Hummus




  1. Place chickpeas, garlic, olive oil, and lemon oil in a food processor and blend until smooth.
  2. If no processor is available you can smash the chickpeas with a fork but the consistency will not be the same.
  3. Add other ingredients to taste and desired consistency.
  4. Serve with blue corn chips, whole wheat, sprouted, or gluten-free pita bread slices, carrots, sliced bell peppers, cauliflower, or snap peas.
