This dip is the definition of moreish. I mean Addicting Simple 3 Step Hummus—it’s in the name. Super easy to make, natural and healthy ingredients, and an incredible flavor and texture to make you keep coming back for more.
Easily one of my favorite naturally vegan dips, this healthy hummus is also naturally gluten-free.
Does anyone else just love the act of dipping? The taste is AWESOME, of course. But the act of physically dipping your chosen vessel into a bowl of garbanzo goodness is what makes it.
It’s great with pretzels. chips. cucumber. But also amazing on sandwiches and burgers. It’s a dip and a spread!
Simple 3 Step Hummus Tips & Tricks
Save That Chickpea Water
And 2, and maybe even more importantly, you may want to add some to your hummus depending on your desired texture.
I actually like it a little bit grainy, but if you want a smoother, creamier dip, add some extra aquafaba, about 1 teaspoon at a time, until you get the consistency you want.
Green Tip: Always avoid food waste when you can! Instead of throwing away your chickpea water, use some to make your hummus creamier, or use it in another recipe altogether!
Make It Your Own
This is the go-to classic hummus recipe that I also use as a base for whatever flavor I’m in the mood for. Start with this recipe and add whatever you like. Roasted red peppers, toasted pine nuts, pesto… chocolate? Maybe not.
But, seriously, go for it! Follow this recipe and then throw in your other favorite add-ins to make it your own!
Freeze It For Later
Once made, this hummus should be enjoyed within a week, but you can freeze it for up to 6 months. Thaw it in the refrigerator and then eat it in 5-7 days.

When hummus goes bad, there is usually visible white mold on top and a strong sour smell.
Hummus is naturally gluten-free, dairy-free, and vegan.
