How to Make Vegan Hummus

  1. Prepare the Garlic: Finely chop the garlic and lightly sauté it in a bit of sesame oil. Set aside to cool.

FAQ

Q: Can I make this vegan hummus without a whipper?
A: Yes, you can still achieve a creamy texture by blending the ingredients until smooth. The whipper adds an extra level of creaminess, but it’s not mandatory.

Q: How can I adjust the thickness of the hummus?
A: For a thicker hummus, add less water or vegetable stock. If you prefer it thinner, gradually incorporate more liquid until you reach your desired consistency.

A: A pinch of xanthan gum can enhance the stability and texture of the hummus, making it even creamier and preventing separation.
