Slow Cooker Hummus


  • 8 cups water
  • 2 cups dried chickpeas
  • 5 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 2 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
  • 1/2 cup tahini
  • 5 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 5 garlic cloves, crushed


For best results, we recommend using:


  1. Put water, chickpeas, 2 tablespoons olive oil, and 1 teaspoon salt into a slow cooker
  2. Cook on Low until tender, 7 to 8 hours.
  3. Reserve 1/2 cup of the cooking liquid in a small bowl and drain chickpeas.
  4. Pulse chickpeas and half the reserved cooking liquid together in a food processor until no whole chickpeas remain; add remaining cooking liquid, tahini, lemon juice, garlic, and remaining teaspoon salt and process until smooth, 7 to 8 minutes. Alternately, put the ingredients into a deep bowl or pot and blend with an immersion blender until smooth.
  5. Stir remaining 3 tablespoons of olive oil into the hummus to serve.
Mealthy tip:

Hummus can be served warm, immediately after finishing. Otherwise, refrigerated until chilled. Serve this dish with flatbread, chips, or vegetables. Homemade hummus also makes a fantastic sandwich spread.

Never knew I could make hummus in a slow cooker! This is a classic hummus recipe, very tasty. Depending on how smooth you want it, you can add a little extra water. Solid recipe.

This hummus was really good. I made it with naan bread and used it for dipping. I won't ever eat store bought hummus again. This taste like the restaurant version, so good.

First time making hummus in the slow cooker. Delicious flavor, the measurements were perfect. I know you're supposed to chill the hummus but I actually really like it warm. Very good.

My husband has served a few tours overseas and this is one of his favorite snacks. I decided to learn how to make it and found this recipe. Super easy and tasted amazing with some warm naan bread.
