Friends you already know that I’m the biggest hummus lover on earth. I could eat this stuff almost every day. Recently I had a look at my recipes on the blog and realized there are lot of extraordinary Hummus Recipes, like my Pistachio Hummus with Pomegranate, or my Roasted Parsnip Hummus Dip.

For more examples of the full hummus experience just type “hummus” into the page’s search box and get some more ideas.

But I also noticed that a classic flavor was really missing here. Come on, I eat that stuff almost every day and don’t have a classic hummus recipe on the blog.

That has to change, and today is the day.

This 30 Seconds Best Hummus Recipe is a showstar, vegan, gluten free, oil free, and would you believe me it only takes 30 seconds?

No joke we only need 5 ingredients and one simple easy step. And a high speed blender with at least 1200 Watt, otherwise it will take a bit longer to make this. I will show you how to blend right.

Hah, you might think this guy is a bit funny: how to blend right? But I got some questions about this topic from some of my readers, like “How should I blend?” and I think I’m really happy to help for all of you.

Sometimes it can be a bit overwhelming, for example when you have a new high speed blender and get so much information what you can do with it. These machines are really fun and the options are countless.

I hope you are love this easy to go kitchen staple 30 Seconds Best Hummus recipe. It’s fast, easy, savory, garlicky, lemony, creamy, flavorful, versatile, just delicious on it’s own.

I love eating this straight from the blender, or as a compliment nearly to all things, such as salads, wraps, sweet potatoes, veggies, sandwiches, tortilla chips –  the options are endless and no dream is too big.

Closeup on 30 Seconds Best Hummus

Before we start, friends as I promised a short introduction how to blend right!

  • Always start with the liquid, like water, oil, lemon juice
  • Next come the chickpeas with the brine, garlic, cumin, salt and pepper.
  • Finally add tahini.

When you don’t start with the liquid, maybe you start with the chickpeas first, the result may be different. It might happen that the result will not as creamy in some parts.

  • Use a tamper. This is important as the ingredients can reach the blades easier. If you don’t have a tamper, just scrape down the sides with a spatula and blend again. But this will take longer than 30 seconds.
  • When using a tamper, use it on the sides not in the middle.
  • Use always a manual mode not an automatic so you can better control the speed.

What to do if you don’t own a high speed blender? No worries, you can make it in nearly every blender or food processor but it will take a bit longer.

Are you ready to spend 30 seconds together? Let me show you how with my notes and instructions above you will be able to create the most delicious, creamiest, best hummus in just 30 seconds.

Just combine all the ingredients in your high speed blender. As I said before start with the liquid, followed by chickpeas with the brine (do not drain!) and all the other ingredients.

Use the manual setting and the highest speed and use a tamper. Process until smooth, after 30 seconds, done. If you aren’t able to turn time on your machine for just 30 seconds start with the smallest time and stop after 30 seconds.

Could it be any easier, friends? I guess not! Can you imagine you only need 30 seconds? And it tastes fantastic, vegan, gluten free, oil free.

This is just a winning combination and will make a delicious snack with veggie sticks, and appetizer. Or as main course with roasted veggies and potatoes, perfect with my Turmeric Falafel on sandwiches, in wraps and so many more.

Believe me, if you ever make your homemade hummus you won’t turn back to store bought version. Plus it’s so much cheaper. In the stores you get a tiny amount of hummus.

Here you get a really big batch for a really inexpensive amount, plus you know exactly what’s inside, no preservatives or artificial flavors.

I usually cook my own chickpeas. How much extra water do I need to add for the brine?

Florian

Monday 31st of May 2021

Hi Marcy! You will need 1/2 cup of chickpea water. Hope that clarifies and helps.

For the chickpeas do all canned ones come in brine or do some come in water or is there a difference? Also, don’t the chickpeas need to be dehulled? Other recipes call for doing that for the smoothness...unless some come that way that I’m not aware of??

Florian

Hi Bonnie! All canned chickpeas come with brine. I used a high speed blender and find there isn't any need for dehulled chickpeas, but feel free to do that. Hope that helps.

Good Morning and thank you for sharing your great ideas. We would like to ask you a question if you do not mind..regarding tahini...do you perchance make it?? We do not use oil and what we have found in the market thus far is made with oil. Guess we could just grind sesame seeds???? Howsoever, we don't have a high powered blender?, but we do have a blender and a food processor. Thank you fellow humus liker!!!!

Florian

Hi Susan! My tahini from the supermarket is made with just sesame seeds without any added oil. I haven't any experience with homemade tahini paste, but my guess is you have to be really patient. Otherwise your food processor might be burnt and overheated, so a lot of pauses while pulsing is key. Let me know how it works and good luck.

What is the yield in cups? You show 12 servings but not the size of the serving. Thanks!

Florian

Wednesday 13th of November 2019

Hi Janet! I would say one can expect 1/4 cup of hummus per serving. Hope that helps.
