3 Minutes Hummus Recipe

3 Minutes Hummus Recipe

This really is the best hummus recipe! Not only is it fast and easy, but it’s also super creamy and delicious. It’s the classic hummus you know and love – made from a handful of wholesome ingredients – and it’s done in under three minutes with a high-powered blender!


Chickpeas are wonderful for gut health as they’re loaded with fiber and keep things moving through your digestive system (in other words, they help with constipation). But here’s the really good part. The type of fiber they’re loaded with is insoluble fiber – the kind that helps to lower “bad” cholesterol while feeding the “good” gut bugs in your microbiomeThat’s because insoluble fiber doesn’t break down until it hits the large intestine. And when it does hit the large intestine, those good gut bugs feed off the insoluble fiber, creating short-chain-fatty-acids, giving you energy and protecting the health of your colon.

This healthy, homemade hummus is super easy and tastes better than anything store-bought. 

Prep Time: 3 mins

Total Time: 3 mins

Servings: 16 servings



2 (15-ounce cans) chickpeas drained with liquid reserved

⅓ cup chickpea liquid or more, as needed

½ cup tahini

¼ cup olive oil

2 lemons juiced

2 garlic cloves

1 teaspoon cumin

½ teaspoon kosher salt

For Garnish

extra-virgin olive oil


freshly chopped parsley




Add all the ingredients to a high-powered blender and secure the lid. Remove the lid cap and insert the tamper.

Turn the blender on high for 30 seconds (or more for a creamier texture) and use the tamper to push the hummus into the blades. Add more chickpea liquid (aquafaba), if desired, for a softer hummus.

Add the hummus to a small serving bowl and garnish with olive oil, paprika and fresh parsley.




Don’t forget that you can also make tahini yourself (rather than buying in the store). Just follow my tahini recipe.

1 cup of dried chickpeas = 3 cups of soaked and cooked chickpeas = approx 30 ounces canned chickpeas




The beauty of hummus is that it holds up well in the fridge and is endlessly versatile. That’s why it’s one of my top meal prep recipes! Plus, if you need a crowd-pleasing appetizer – no one ever can deny a big crudite platter with hummus in the middle. And you can easily make it ahead of time!

To store: Scoop the hummus into an airtight container and store in the fridge for 3 to 4 days.

To freeze: Yes, you can freeze any leftover hummus in a freezer-safe container for up to 3 months. Side note – I always have a stash of it in my freezer, ready to thaw and enjoy on a moment’s notice!
