Easy Tahini-Free Hummus
It’s safe to say hummus is one of my favorite foods to create… and eat! If you don’t believe me just take a look at all of this hummus deliciousness on the blog. However, I do realize some of you may be a little stumped by the use of tahini- other than being used in most hummus recipes, it’s not a very common ingredient and it can be pretty pricey. Guess what? With this easy tahini-free hummus recipe, you don’t need tahini to whip up a super flavorful hummus dip!!!
Only 8 ingredients, 5 minutes and a food processor or blender– that’s all you need, folks, to make some of the best hummus ever. If you’re still buying hummus at the store, you’ve got to stop. That’s an order! Homemade hummus is so easy and so much tastier than store-bought, plus you’re in control of the ingredients.
My tahini-free hummus contains one of my very favorite ingredients- avocado! And it makes for a hummus that is:
and incredibly yummy!
