Tahini-Free Hummus Recipe (Easy & Vegan)

Tahini-Free Hummus Recipe

Making a delicious, tahini-free hummus is simple and healthy for the whole family.  Many people are steering clear of tahini, due to its high calorie and fat content.  Although the fat content of tahini is high, only about 10% of that fat is saturated.  I believe that if you are on a diet to lose weight, then you may prefer to make a hummus that is free of tahini.  With this simple recipe, you can create a heart-healthy, guilt-free hummus, for dipping your favorite veggies, or spreading on your favorite sandwiches.

Tahini-Free Hummus Recipe:

  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Cost: $3.00
  • Time: 5 minutes

First, let’s take a look at what you’ll need:
