We are BIG fans of hummus over here!  This easy and versatile dip is a great quick snack when you want something savory. And it bring some big flavor to the table with lemon juice and fresh pressed garlic in each bite.

I make a big batch of this hummus about once a month, and it’ll last for up to a week in the refrigerator when sealed. Store-bought hummus can contain a ton of extra sodium through preservatives and added sale, so making your own from scratch can be essential!  Top this hummus with fresh herbs, paprika, and creamy olive oil for a little flavor!

If you’re looking for a quick bite or a snack that doesn’t have salt, this hummus is the perfect choice. Make this recipe with no-salt-added chickpeas which are easy to find in stores for a healthy dip that skips the salt. 

The best part about this hummus is that it requires no cooking and is ready in about 10-15 minutes. Perfect for a quick snack attack!  You can see all our low sodium snack recipes here which are naturally salt-free!

What’s In This Salt Free Hummus Recipe?

See the recipe card below for a full list of instructions and ingredient amounts!

  • Lemon, Garlic, Herbs
  • Chickpeas one of my favorite pantry staple ingredients! You can use salt free canned chickpeas, or you can make your own no sodium dried chickpeas from scratch in the Instant Pot/Pressure Cooker, see note below!
  • Tahini: A fantastic and flavorful spread made from ground sesame seeds.
  • Cumin: also adds a really nice flavor to this recipe – cumin has a lightly smokey flavor
  • Red Chili Flakes: for a little heat! I like to add a few shakes to this recipe to give this dish a nice complex depth of flavor.
  • Water
  • Smoked Paprika: give an additional depth of flavor to this dish.

No Salt Canned Beans Versus Homemade

While I love the convenience of no-salt-added canned beans, I also love cooking dry beans from scratch in my Pressure Cooker – the texture is better and it’s more economical.  I use the 8-Quart Instant Pot Ultra, which is larger than standard models 3 to 4 times a week. The Instant Pot works wonders for cooking dried beans fast, no soaking required!

While canned beans are super convenient, normal varieties are often loaded with sodium.  If you buy canned beans, I always recommend using a no salt added variety so you can control the amount of sodium in your recipes. Next time you reach for the canned beans, think about investing in a pressure cooker instead! Homemade beans are incredibly cost efficient, and you can add seasonings and spices to the beans while they cook for extra flavor.

How Do You Make Hummus Without Salt?

  1. To a food processor (this won’t work in a blender) add the chickpeas, tahini, garlic, lemon juice, ice, cumin, and chili flakes.
  2. Turn the machine on and open the attachment in the lid to stream in the cold water until the hummus starts to blend. Run the processor for 4-5 minutes until the hummus is smooth and creamy.
  3. Add hummus to a plate or a bowl, and top with a drizzle of olive oil, fresh herbs (I used mint), and a sprinkle of smoked paprika.
  4. Refrigerate leftovers, which should keep up to 5-6 days in the refrigerator in a sealed container.
