Everyone has been loving the Everything But the Bagel seasoning and it is the perfect flavor for a creamy, delicious hummus. A mix of spices like garlic, onion, sesame seeds, and olive oil create the best hummus that you will want to make over and over again.
I started to fall in love with the Everything but the bagel (EBTB) seasoning when Trader Joe's released it years ago. Initially it just went on avocado toast (the perfect crunchy, salty topping if you haven't tried it) but later I started to sprinkle it on tofu scramble, veggies, and finally on top of my plain garlic hummus. And WOW! That was the epiphany that I needed to create an Everything But the Bagel Hummus.

FAQ Everything Bagel Hummus
What is tahini and where can I find that?
Tahini is roasted, hulled sesame seeds ground into a paste. It is a condiment found in most hummus recipes. You can find it in your grocery store near the peanut butter or international foods (Middle Eastern). It does not have to be refrigerated. I recommend getting a higher quality brand because it makes a big difference in your hummus.
Why do I need baking soda for this recipe?
Baking soda is used to soften your chickpeas before you put them in the food processor. You will use ½ teaspoon when cooking your chickpeas and it makes a HUGE difference in the texture of your hummus. No, you cannot taste it in your hummus.
Is hummus a healthy snack?
Yes, it contains healthy carbohydrates, protein, and fat.
Chickpeas are high in fiber (good for digestion), folate, manganese, copper and more.
Eat your hummus with multigrain pita crackers, cucumbers, carrots, or sliced bell peppers.
Can I use a blender to make hummus?
You can if it's a high speed blender. A small blender like a nutribullet likely won't create the creamiest hummus. I use a food processor and it works great every time!
This is the food processor I use and it's inexpensive:
