LoadingFavoriteAdd to favorites

After falling in love with how easy it is to make hummus at home, I decided to play around with some of my favorite hummus flavors. Smoky and sweet sums it up for this silky-smooth hummus that can be enjoyed as a sandwich spread or a cracker and veggie dip. Personally, I enjoy it right off the spoon. In fact, yesterday, I was enjoying some hummus as I was leaning against the kitchen island. Bob asked me what I was eating. “Hummus,” I responded. “Just hummus?”  Yep, just hummus. It’s that good.

Amie Sue’s version with fresh veggies.

My goal with this recipe was to make it oil-free and tahini-free. Over the years, I have received many requests for recipes that do not have overt fats (added fats). Besides, it’s great to have options so you can make recipes based on your dietary intake, food intolerances, and / or ingredient availability.

Yields 2 1/4 cups


  1. Drain the chickpeas, remove the skins, and place in the food processor.
    • Removing the skins is optional but I find that doing so creates a creamier texture.
  2. In a food processor, fitted with the “S” blade, combine the chickpeas, roasted red pepper, miso, lemon juice, balsamic vinegar, cumin, and vegetable broth. Purée to a texture that you like–chunky or extra smooth.
    • Stop the machine, remove the lid, and scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed to integrate any large chunks.
  3. Serve with cut vegetables, rice crackers, use as a spread on your next sandwich, and so forth.
  4. Hummus will keep in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
