Oil-Free Lemon Zest Hummus

Especially in the summer, I almost always have a batch of hummus in my fridge. It's such a great snack to pair with fresh veggies. And there's no cooking involved, so it's just a cool, refreshing snack.

So, I'm always looking for unique hummus flavors. When I thought about what would be cool and refreshing, lemon immediately came to mind.

Hummus traditionally contains lemon juice, but it's amped up in this recipe with a whole lemon's worth of juice and the zest! It's such a light and refreshing flavor. Perfect for warm weather!!

Ingredients

  • Chickpeas: Be sure to buy a low/no added salt can.
  • Coconut Cream: Instead of a seed butter like tahini I used coconut cream. It adds such a creaminess!
  • Garlic: Fresh or freeze dried garlic adds that umami kick.
  • Spices: Cumin & Salt
  • Lemon Zest & Juice: Grab a whole lemon and zest and juice it. Lemon adds such a freshness to this hummus.
  • Aquafaba: This hummus already has quite a bit of liquid, from the coconut cream and the lemon juice, but if you like a thinner hummus, use some of the aquafaba from the can of chickpeas to thin out the dip.

How to make Oil-Free Lemon Zest Hummus

Making hummus is easy! Just add all the ingredients to a food processor. Blend until completely smooth. The coconut milk helps create an ultra smooth texture. Serve with veggies and enjoy!

thank you for the oil free recipe. I'm getting introduced to wild Bolete mushrooms here in Colorado, and everyone sautes Bolete's in butter or olive oil. I'm on a veggie, oil free regimen for heart health reasons. and your recipe suggestion may fill the bill. I can't wait to give it a try.
