The best hummus ever!!

I seriously love most any hummus and typically go for the roasted red pepper. By the way, if you haven’t tried Trader Joe’s eggplant hummus, it’s to die for. The recipe I’m sharing with you today is absolutely one of the best original hummuses {is that even a word?} I’ve ever tried!!


I have to say that the meal plan for the 7-day Kick Start on Body Revolution is getting a teensy bit old. I’m for sure sticking to it, but I’m so ready for this week to end. Jillian’s pancakes will definitely be on the meal plan for next week. At least, I’m able to have some of this delicious hummus for my snack!

This recipe is so simple…almost just as simple, as throwing the prepackaged hummus into your cart. And this way, you get to control the ingredients.


Something to think about:

What’s your favorite type of hummus?

Have you ever tried making your own hummus?

Have you ever tried eggplant hummus?

If you love hummus, you might want to try my Beet Hummus.

Have a super fantastic Tuesday!


  1. I love hummus with lots and lots of garlic and cilantro, my friend makes an awesome recipe for it and you literally smell of garlic for days but it is so worth it :)

    Loving your recipe too.

  2. What is in Trader Joe’s Eggplant Hummus?

  3. I LOVE Hummus!! I could eat it with a spoon, just like that. I have several Hummus recipes on the blog (eggplant hummus, guac-hummus) and I whip up a big jar almost every week :-) Love that you added Tahini, I have that at home, so must give it a try!!

  4. If you asked me a year ago whether or not I liked hummus, I would have told you NO.. but within the past year I cannot seem to get enough of it! Seriously, on sandwiches; salads; eggs.. you name it, i’ve probably had it on there.. okay don’t ask bananas bc that sounds gross, Ha Ha!

    …. okay now that I just went on a pointless ramble, this recipe sounds awesome. Love the simple ingredients and preparation of it too!

  5. I am absolutely obsessed with hummus, and I go through containers of it WAY too fast. I should really start making my own because it would likely be more economical!

    I have not tried the eggplant hummus from TJ’s (but definitely will!), but I LOVE their tomato basil flavor. It is awesome!

  6. My sister sometimes shows up with an edamame hummus. I’m not sure where she gets it – maybe Harris Teeter? But it’s DELICIOUS!!

  7. I’ve been wanting to try eggplant hummus since I did Whole30 and starting eating Paleo.

    Your blog design is super cute by the way! :)

  9. I make hummus at home, and always jazz it up with different flavors. But that’s because I’ve never found a traditional hummus recipe that I liked as much as a packaged version. I can’t wait to try this! Whenever you get excited about something, I know it’s got to be good. I’m pinning this to try! Thanks!

    • It’s really good. Another reader had the suggestion of adding a little cumin powder, which I think would be really good too.

  10. I have an embarrassing confession to make – I’ve never made my own hummus. I know that it’s so ridiculously easy, I’m just afraid that I won’t like it as much as the one in the store. But this recipe sounds fabulous – classic hummus is my favorite!
