Garlic Hummus Recipe

by Olena

Easy and Healthy Garlic Hummus Recipe made in a blender for the most fluffy and creamy hummus you have ever tried. And its ingredients are so easy!

This is a very old recipe of mine. One day I got tired of store bought hummus, particularly the process of revamping it in my kitchen. Every time I would buy one, it is too plain and dry in a few days. I would throw it in a blender and add garlic, olive oil and tahini. Our hummus expectations are high because Alex lived in the Middle East for many years.

This garlic hummus recipe is delicious, fluffy and creamy. Blender gives it such a nice whipped texture, you will never go back to making hummus in a food processor or store-bought will never taste the same. Any time we need an appetizer, I make it. It’s easy, healthy and versatile – serve with whole grain crackers and/or vegetables.

Notes

You can use food processor but hummus will be less fluffy and creamy.

The more powerful the blender, the smoother hummus will be.

  1. You were right, Olena! Your garlic hummus recipe is so creamy! Into my recipe binder it goes.

  2. YUM!!! This is the best recipe for hummus I’ve found online! It has too much pepper for my daughters taste, but it’s so easy to modify garlic and other seasonings to your taste. I highly recommend this recipe. I will be making it again 💚

  3. I just made this today. I am awful for snacking on sugary and salty treats throughout the day so decided I was going to change my habit from today. This is something I will no doubt be making again and again. It is so amazingly tasty and foolproof. Will be passing it on! Thanks for sharing!

    1. Awesome and thank you so much for sharing! I make this hummus all the time as store bought never tastes even close, plus it’s hard to find organic hummus. I refuse to eat full of GMO canola oil hummus. So easy to make at home and keeps well.
