Very few “superfoods” taste as great as hummus. Even my kids will clamor at the table waiting for a bowl of this creamy delight. Each ingredient packs a major dose of health benefits. Protein, healthy fats, fiber and vitamin C are just a few reasons why hummus is a crucial part of the Mediterranean Longevity Diet.

With that said, let’s be honest. We love hummus because it’s delicious! The contrast of creamy garbanzos and sharp lemon juice on a crisp pita chip hits the spot any day of the week.

Quick Instant Pot Hummus Recipe

  • Prep time: 10 minutes
  • Cook time: 40 minutes
  • Serves: 6-8



  • 2 Cups Dried Garbanzo Beans / Chickpeas
  • 6 Tablespoons Tahini
  • ¼ Cup Lemon Juice
  • ¼ Cup Water
  • ½ Cup Olive Oil
  • 3 Whole Garlic Cloves
  • ½ Teaspoon Ground Cumin
  • ½ Teaspoon Paprika
  • 3 Teaspoons Sea Salt


  • 1)

    Place 2 Cups of Dried Garbanzo Beans into your Instant Pot and add 8 Cups of Water. Seal the lid on your Instant Pot and set it for High Pressure / Manual for 40 Minutes. When it’s done, wait an additional 20 minutes while it does a natural pressure release then switch the knob to venting. When the pin drops, open the lid and pour the garbanzo beans into a colander. Rinse with cold water a few times in the pot, use you hands or spatula and swirl the beans around before draining – this helps remove some of the skin which will result in smoother and creamier hummus. After rinsing, drain in a colander.

    Add the cooled garbanzo beans to your food processor along with 6 Tablespoons of Tahini, ¼ Cup of Lemon Juice, ¼ Cup of Water, 3 Whole Garlic Cloves, ½ Teaspoon of Cumin, ½ Teaspoon of Paprika and 3 Teaspoons of Sea Salt. Turn on your food processor and let it blend for a few minutes. Once it starts looking like a paste, while the food processor is still on, drizzle in ½ Cup of Olive Oil. Let it blend for a few more minutes (you can add a little more water if you want a thinner consistency) . Taste and season with more salt or add more lemon juice to your liking.
