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!

What’s In This Salt Free Hummus Recipe?

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 models3 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.
