All About Hummus

What does hummus taste like?

Hummus has a creamy texture and tastes subtly tangy and nutty. It's quite savory and may have some garlicky undernotes while primarily being chickpea forward.

Can you freeze hummus?

Yes, you can freeze any type of hummus! Place it into an airtight bag or container and freeze it for up to 6 months.

What’s in hummus?

Hummus is a blended dip made from chickpeas, tahini (sesame paste), olive oil, lemon juice, and spices.

How long does hummus last?

Homemade hummus usually lasts for up to 4 days in the refrigerator, but storebought hummus will last for 6 to 7 days after it's been opened.
