2 Ways to Make Homemade Hummus: Fast or Slow - You Choose

We have two different methods we highly recommend for delicious homemade hummus. The first is the slower, more old-school method and the second is a quick, 2-minute hummus making option that we truly love. 

The slow(er) way to make fresh homemade hummus 

This method requires a little more time and a few more ingredients. 


  • 1 cup of dried chickpeas 
  • 2 tablespoons of baking soda
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2/3 cup of Artisanal Tahini
  • Salt to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon of cumin
  • Optional: Paprika, cumin and olive oil for topping


  1. Soak chickpeas overnight (at least 12 hrs) by placing dried chickpeas, 2 tbsp sea salt, 1 tsp baking soda, and 4 cups of water in a large container. Stir to help salt and baking soda dissolve and allow the chickpeas to soak in the fridge overnight.
  2. Rinse soaked chickpeas with cold water and be sure to wash well
  3. Place them into a cooker pressure and cook them for ~2 hrs or till they're cooked and soften
  4. In a food processor, combine the chickpeas, lemon juice, cumin, garlic, and tahini. Process until smooth.
  5. Taste and adjust the seasoning with salt.
  6. Serve the hummus in a bowl, drizzled with a bit more olive oil and a sprinkle of paprika if you like.

The fast way to make fresh homemade hummus (with or without a blender)

Moving into the fast lane, this method involves our super convenient 2 Minute Classic Hummus Kit.

The kit comes with all the ingredients you need. The only thing that’s not included  is a blender or food processor - but you can also just use a fork.

Here's how its done: 


The hummus kit includes:

  • 1 bag of pre-soaked and perfectly cooked chickpeas
  • 2 squeeze packs of stone-ground, creamy SoCo Artisanal Tahini


  1. Combine the chickpeas with 2 tablespoons of water in blender (for a thinner consistency, feel free to add one more tablespoon). Blend for 1 minute.
  2. Add the 2 squeeze packs of Artisanal Tahini to the blender. Blend for another 1 minute.

That's it. Your homemade hummus is ready to be devoured. Feel free to add a drizzle of olive oil, a sprinkle of paprika, or any other extras to your taste. 

Fresh homemade hummus honestly doesn't get any easier (or quicker) than that.

Why we'll always recommend homemade hummus 

There's something very satisfying about making your own hummus at home. Here are three reasons we love it:

  • Full control - When it’s homemade, you know exactly what's in your hummus (and what's not). You won’t be eating any of the weird preservatives and additives found in many store-bought options.
  • Freshness: The taste and texture of fresh homemade hummus is unmatched. It’s like comparing the juciest, garden-picked tomato to a store-bought tomato in the middle of winter. Or - if you're a coffee person - it's as noticeable as the difference between a freshly brewed cup of coffee and instant coffee granules. 
  • Totally customizable: Want more garlic? A dash of paprika? When you make your own, you can tweak the recipe exactly to your liking.

        In the end, whether you're using the traditional method or our 2 Minute Hummus Kit, you're going to taste the difference. The freshness and full flavor of homemade hummus can't be found in a store-bought container. 

        Perfect pairings for your homemade hummus (options for everyone)

        Once you've made your fresh hummus, the next question is - what do you pair it with? The beauty of hummus is its versatility. It can be paired with loads of different foods - here are some of our favorite pairings:

        For Vegans

        • Hummus on toast: Spread your homemade hummus on a slice of sourdough bread and top with avocado slices for a delicious breakfast.
        • Hummus salad dressing: Use hummus as a dressing for your salads - it adds an extra boost of protein and makes even the simplest salads seem gourmet.
        • Hummus and raw veggies: The creamy texture of hummus complements the freshness of carrots, bell peppers, and cucumbers, making it a perfect vegan snack.

        For Gluten-Free Folks

        • Hummus and gluten-free crackers: Use it as a dip for gluten-free crackers or rice cakes.
        • Hummus with vegetables: Pair it with a variety of raw or roasted vegetables - think bell peppers, cucumbers, broccoli, or carrots.
        • Hummus grain bowl: Start with a base of quinoa or rice, top with your favorite veggies, a healthy dollop of hummus, and finish with a drizzle of olive oil.

        For Fish & Meat Eaters

        • Hummus with grilled fish or meats: Spread your homemade hummus on a warm pita bread, add some grilled chicken or lamb kebabs for a protein-packed Mediterranean meal.
        • Hummus with steak: Pair your hummus with a juicy grilled steak. The earthy flavors of the hummus balance perfectly with the robustness of the steak.
