Easy Nutribullet Hummus Recipe

Hummus is a nice healthy item. I like to put it on veggies as a snack to add protein.

Hummus can be made difficult, by soaking chick peas and precooking them etc, but it doesn’t have to be!  This hummus recipe is a simple easy way to make hummus quickly using your Nutribullet or any blender.

The trick to making this simple is to used canned chickpeas. That way, the lengthy part of making hummus has already been done for you, although it is still good to remove the skin from the chickpeas to keep things extra creamy.  If you like spicy hummus you can add some crushed red pepper to this recipe.

  1. I just got my NutriBullet today, I bought it with one of the aims being home-made hummus as my kids love it and devour huge loads of it 🙂 Your recipe sounds delicious, my only difficulty is – how much is to a can of chick peas (I’m European and usually measure in grams)? Thanks!

  2. What about tahini ? And do you have to shell the chick peas ??

    • You can add Tahini if you like. I don’t have a specific amount, but would likely start with a tablespoon or two and see how it tastes. You don’t have to shell the chickpeas. Some people like to do so to get their hummus as creamy as possible, but I never remove them.

  3. Just tried this and added 1/4 cup tehini and a dash of tumeric. So good.

  4. Which blade do you use?

    • Hi! I am making this with my Nutribullet RX, which only has one blade. If you are using something that has both liquid and grinding blades, I suggest experimenting, but would probably lean toward the liquid blade.
