Cilantro Jalapeno Hummus Without Tahini

I am in general a fan of Mediterranean cuisine and Hummus is one of my favourite dip options. Hummus is typically made by blending cooked chickpeas, tahini, olive oil, lemon juice and garlic in a food processor. This version of Cilantro Jalapeno Hummus is made without Tahini. It is also super easy to put together and incredibly yummy!

Instant Pot Hummus without Tahini

Years ago, I always picked Hummus off the shelves of stores. Once I realized homemade hummus is this simple and quick to prepare, I haven’t looked back. With zero preservatives and the addition of fresh ingredients, nothing can beat the flavours and taste of homemade hummus. Cooking chickpeas in the Instant Pot is an added advantage to this Hummus.

Hummus without tahini does taste a little different than the authentic ones with tahini. But, it tastes absolutely good! So, if you don’t have tahini in hand, it shouldn’t stop you from making hummus from scratch.

This delicious is delicious, versatile, packed with goodness & nutrients and also has a number of health benefits. The kick of the jalapenos adds extra flavour and kick to this hummus recipe. Hummus pairs so well with pita bread, falafels, nachos or even with wraps and vegetables.

How to make this Cilantro Jalapeno Hummus

  1. Wash the chickpeas and soak them in enough water for 8 hours or overnight.
  2. Once soaking is done, drain the water. Add 2 cups of fresh water. Cook the chickpeas in your Instant Pot on Bean/Chili mode. Allow the pressure to release naturally and cool to room temperature.
  3. Next, add all ingredients to the food processor. Add water little by little ( 1 tbsp at a time ) and make a smooth paste.
  4. Taste and adjust salt as needed.
  5. Serve as a side!
  6. Store it in the refrigerator for up to a week.

Tips to make the Best Hummus

  1. I generally use only dried chickpeas and do not prefer using canned chickpeas. Soak the chickpeas in enough water overnight and cook them in your Instant Pot or Stovetop pressure cooker. It is so easy and hardly takes any effort.
  2. Cook the chickpeas really well until it gets perfectly mashed. Only then the hummus will turn out good. This is where the Instant Pot helps. It cooks the chickpeas so well.
  3. I generally do not peel the skin of the chickpeas while grinding it. To get smooth and perfect hummus without peeling the skin of the chickpeas, just grind it for a little more time by adding enough water. That is enough.
  4. Use good quality Olive Oil for the best flavour and taste.
  5. Add jalapeno according to your taste. Obviously, this is where all this spice comes from. So, I prefer adding them with their seeds. For a spicier hummus, add more jalapeno according to your preference.
