No Oil Hummus

Updated: Mar 12, 2021

Crisp veggies with hummus are fun to eat and are nutritious too. Most kids love this dip. I tried making this dip, ditching the traditional method of adding olive oil to it. To my delight, it worked well perfectly. I love to add lots of herbs to the point that it looks beautiful green. Instead of plain cumin powder, I use freshly roasted cumin seeds and powder them in a mortar pestle. The aroma itself is too good, and I have always experienced that roasted spices immensely exceed the dish's taste.

Preparation time: 10 mins

cook time : 20 min

Total time : 30 mins

Serves: (3-4)


Garbanzo beans – 1 cup (soaked and cooked)

Garlic – 2 clove

Lemon/lime juice – 2 tbsp.

Parsley/cilantro leaves - 1/2 cup

Salt - 1/2 tsp or to taste


1. Put garlic in a food processer/blender. Pulse to chop it roughly.

2. Add all the ingredients and blend them to smooth creamy paste.

3. Garnish it with some chopped cilantro/parsley.
