Hummus recipe without Tahini |Step by Step

Step by step hummus recipe without tahini with photos of each step.

Hummus bi tahini, is a middle eastern side line that taste heavenly with fresh homemade pita bread. Homemade humus tastes great with barbecue dishes, as hummus dip with chips and vegetables; and even tastes good with tandoori naan and wheat roti.

This recipe is great for those who wish to make hummus from scratch or who do not have tahini.

To boil soft chickpeas

You can either use canned chickpeas for this recipe. If you wish to use boiled chickpeas below are the step for soft-boiled chickpeas. If chickpeas are hard your blending will be long and troublesome. Usually if prefer boiling a large batch of chickpeas in advance and freeze. So I can make hummus quickly when craving strikes.

  • Soak  3/4 cup raw chickpea in warm water for two hours. Also add 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda.
  • Discard water and boil in new water with 1 tsp of salt on medium flame for 30-45 minutes until very soft.
  • You can cook in pressure cooker to speed up.
  • Dry water of chickpeas on high flame completely, while stirring constantly.
