Cheap n’ Easy No Oil Hummus [Vegan Recipe]

No Oil Vegan Hummus Recipe

Hey Love Bees! 🐝

For the longest time, I could never understand why people are so passionate about hummus.
To me, it tasted bland and dry, with a horrible pasty texture. 😝 My mum, on the other hand, loved it, and would regularly buy ready-made hummus from the store.
She ate that stuff like there was no tomorrow – which quickly became a problem, as those tiny pots they sell at the supermarket are just not designed for hummusexuals!!
Eventually, in an attempt to satisfy her appetite for hummus, I picked up some cheap, dried chickpeas and decided to try making some from scratch. (I love to cook for my mama!💕) 
At the time, I wasn’t planning to eat any of it myself, but as I was making it I had a small taste, and found that I actually really liked it!
Since that day I’ve been making (and enjoying) homemade hummus regularly – and the great thing is that it’s not only cheaper to make at home, but I can also choose what I want to put in it.
This means that I can adjust it to suit my tastes, and can avoid adding any nasties such as oil, preservatives, colourings, or excessive amounts of salt.
Nutritionally, this delicious vegan hummus is a great source of vitamin C, B vitamins, protein and calcium. It also contains other essential nutrients such as omega-3 fatty acids, phosphorus, zinc and selenium.
I really hope you enjoy my recipe for this simple, yet delicious hummus! 💜
