Yeast Free Hummus

Yeast Free Hummus

Who knew that mashed up chickpeas could taste so good.  Hummus is one of my favorite dips and I am so happy that hummus is candida diet friendly.  It took me quite a while to attempt making hummus at home.  My local Greek Restaurant makes the best hummus that I have ever tasted, so I was use to just picking up my hummus and going about my business.  However, in a continued effort to get to know what I am actually eating I decided to attempt my own hummus.    The following is the recipe that I used for my first attempt at hummus.  I had never even heard of tahini before I came across this recipe and had to Google it in order to see what I would be looking for in the store.  Pretty sad right,  I had been eating tahini for at least a year or two and didn’t even know what it was.  Well now I know and executing this recipe was truly a learning experience.  My yeast free hummus came out pretty good but it was chunkier than what I was use to but maybe I just need a better blender.  I used canned chickpeas, also known as garbanzo beans for this recipe.  Be sure to read labels carefully when choosing your chickpeas so that you don’t accidentally buy something with ingredients prohibited on the candida diet.  I am looking forward to pairing this dip with some yeast free brown rice crackers, tortilla chips and/or vegetables.  I hope that you enjoy this yeast free hummus.

I can never get my hummus smooth and creamy and it is irritating.  The am just never able to puree the beans without un-appetizing chunks being leftover.  My absolute favorite hummus comes from George’s Cafe and Grill in Ridgefield Park NJ.  This is the best hummus I have ever tasted and it makes it hard to choke down my mediocre attempts at this wonderful dip.  Generally speaking most hummus recipes are made with candida diet friendly ingredients.  The varieties of hummus in the store are not candida diet friendly because they contain citric acid to preserve freshness.

I recently bought Bob’s Red Mill Garbanzo Bean Flour (Chickpea Flour) to make a Gluten/Yeast Free Pizza crust and noticed a recipe for hummus on the back of the bag.  This recipe inspired me to take another stab at making my own hummus again.  I was hoping that since I was using flour instead of trying to puree the actual chickpeas that this may help my consistency problem.  I did omit the Tabasco sauce one because I didn’t have any and two because I don’t think that Tabasco sauce is a candida diet friendly ingredient.  The result was really tasty.  This hummus is still not George’s but it is candida diet friendly hummus that even my kids like.  It also came out smooth and creamy just the way I like it.

    Hi Sue,

    Thanks for stopping by. Yes onions are okay on the yeast free diet and add such a nice flavor to our dishes. I never thought about putting red onions in hummus. I am going to give this a try. Thanks so much for sharing.

    Be well,

  • This is really great to know. I recently had a bout with yeast in my mouth. It was just horrible, so I am trying to eat yeast free, also. You mentioned in this article that you planned on eating this with yeast free brown rice crackers, tortilla chips and vegetables. Are tortilla chips yeast free? I buy the gluten free chips, because originally I have been on a gluten free diet, because bread seemed to bother me, little did I know it was the yeast. Could you please let me know, because I would like to find some yeast free chips and those brown rice crackers. I didn’t mean to click the stars below, so I couldn’t get them to come off. I gave you a five star, because I haven’t tried it yet and didn’t want to give you one star if it was really great. Sorry. Thanks for posting this wonderful article. Have a great day!

  • Hi Vickie,

    Thanks so much for stopping by. Tortilla chips can be yeast free provided they contain only a few candida diet friendly ingredients. Corn the main ingredient in tortilla chips however should be consumed cautiously since it is extremely high in carbohydrates and may trigger symptoms. So while I consider them yeast free they are not going to work for everyone. I only eat a few chips at time to avoid problems. There are several yeast free cracker options. The following links will give you some suggestions on both tortilla chips and crackers. Candida Diet Friendly Tortilla Chips and Candida Diet Friendly Crackers.

    Thanks for not giving me 1 star and letting me know about the mistake. I am going to try to reset it. I would to hear your feedback if you do give the recipe a try in the future.

    Be well,
