Slimming World Hummus

I originally shared with you this Slimming World Hummus back in late 2017.

I wanted something that was low in syns or syn free that I could snack on during my SP days.

I had been making hummus in the soup maker for 2 years at that point and wanted to make a yummy slimming world version.

Fast forward a few years and my youngest son Jorge (who is 4) jumped for joy when I said I was going to make him a chickpea dip in the soup maker.

He is the biggest chickpea fan that I have ever known and eats more than me when I make a batch of air fryer chickpeas.

Though, after suggesting some soup maker hummus to him, he took over and did a great job of making this hummus.

Can You Make Hummus In The Soup Maker?

Yes you can. Whilst many people associate soup makers with soup, it does have other uses too.

I have used my soup maker for baby food, curry sauce, cheese sauce, and several rounds of soup maker hummus.

How Many Syns In Tahini?

There are 5 syns per tablespoon of tahini. You are probably wondering how that works out for making hummus.

Well, firstly, I know of SW members that will leave out the tahini and keep it totally syn free.

BUT I used just one teaspoon of tahini in my homemade hummus. Then imagine I made two big tubs of hummus. That makes the entire hummus recipe 1.6 Syns.

Then imagine that you have a dip dish with hummus, and it fills 8 dip dishes. That would mean each time you snack on hummus it will work out at 0.2 Syns a portion.

Making it what I call virtually syn free hummus.

How Many Syns In Hummus?

If you were to buy hummus from the supermarket, then you would be looking at 2.5 syns per tablespoon. Making them much higher in syns when you buy them from the shop vs making your own.

What Is The Difference Between Hummus & Houmous?

You will find that if you use the Slimming World app that it will display hummus as houmous.

Well hummus is the correct primary word for it and houmous is often an alternative to spelling.

A bit like doughnut vs donut.

You get to decide if you are going to call yours slimming world hummus or slimming world houmous.

FAQs

Why add ice water to hummus? ›

While it sounds counterintuitive, the water makes the hummus creamy, light, and almost fluffy in texture. It's a trick we learned from Yotam Ottolenghi that has improved our hummus game considerably.

Why is homemade hummus better than store bought? ›

A: Many packaged hummus brands are pretty healthy – the basic ingredients are chickpeas, tahini (sesame seed paste), olive oil, garlic and lemond juice. But making it at home allows you to control the sodium, calories and nutrients. It means you can also play with the taste.

What to add to canned hummus? ›

Next, enhance the blank slate of flavor with a few squeezes of lemon juice, a sprinkling of garlic salt, a turn of freshly cracked pepper, a heavy-handed sprinkle of paprika, and a generous drizzle of your nicest olive oil. Bonus points if you have an herby olive oil on hand with a little color to it.

Why doesn't my homemade hummus taste good? ›

If your hummus is the right consistency or thickness but it tastes dry and pasty, it might be lacking a bit of oil. This recipe relies on the tahini to give it creaminess as I don't find olive oil makes enough of a difference to warrant the extra calories.

Why is my homemade hummus tasteless? ›

You're Not Using Enough/The Right Tahini

The one ingredient that gives hummus its undeniable richness, depth of flavor, and subtle nuttiness is tahini. This means that the final product depends on the amount of tahini that you add and the brand of tahini that you're using.

What thickens hummus? ›

If , for some reason, you ended up using more liquid than you should have or if you still want a thicker consistency, you can add a bit more tahini. And if you chill the hummus for an hour or so before adding any garnish, that should help as well.

Why is my homemade hummus runny? ›

Things that will not make smooth hummus:

Removing all the skins from the chickpeas. Not only will it drive you crazy removing all the skins (honestly they seem endless), it will not make your hummus smooth. Adding lots of water. This will make your hummus watery and a little bit smoother but it will be way too runny.

Why do you put baking soda in hummus? ›

Garlic: Fresh garlic cloves are always superior to garlic powder, and it's especially true in homemade hummus! Baking soda: Adding baking soda to the chickpeas helps make the legume easier to digest, softer, and makes them easy to peel. Don't skip this ingredient!

What can I use instead of tahini in hummus? ›

If you feel adventurous, try replacing the tahini with an equal amount of peanut butter, sunflower seed butter, Greek yogurt, chopped roasted peppers, pitted olives, roasted beets, steamed sweet potato, avocado, or thawed frozen peas, to name just a few possibilities.

Is it cheaper to make or buy humus? ›

Hummus is cheaper and more delicious when it's homemade—and you don't need a recipe (or chickpeas!) to make it. All products are independently selected by our editors. If you buy something, we may earn an affiliate commission. I've bought too many tubs of sub-par hummus and I've decided it's time to stop.

What makes hummus taste good? ›

Tahini is a paste made from ground sesame seeds, which makes hummus taste incredible. You can buy tahini, or you can make it yourself. We use homemade tahini to make hummus that's 100% from scratch (it's easy, I promise).

Does homemade hummus taste better than store bought? ›

The taste:

I loved it. I have to admit it tasted a little bit different to the shop-bought hummus I am used to, but definitely in a good way. I added more than a squeeze of lemon juice and it had a really fresh taste and just tasted light and healthier, yet the texture also felt more substantial than shop-bought.

What makes hummus good? ›

Hummus is a versatile ingredient and a good source of fiber, along with vitamins and minerals like manganese, copper, folate, and iron.

Why add baking soda to chickpeas for hummus? ›

Baking soda: Adding baking soda to the chickpeas helps make the legume easier to digest, softer, and makes them easy to peel. Don't skip this ingredient!

Why is homemade hummus not creamy? ›

You might need more tahini, garlic, lemon and/or salt and very likely more chickpea water. Add a bit of each as you need, the recipe explains. "Blitz the hummus until very smooth, a few minutes at least. Don't worry about the hummus being too loose; it will thicken as it sits."
