Chickpea hummus: absolutely delicious but is it the only type of hummus we can make? Absolutely not! There is what I wanted to show you in this post! I first tried adzuki bean hummus just as an experiment because of my curiosity and right now it is one of my favourite kinds! Better than store bought hummus for sure and it takes only a few minutes on a food processor if you are using canned or cooked beans.
For chickpea hummus, you might have seen that you need to peel the skins off for it to be extra creamy and it does make a huge difference but, what is great about this adzuki bean hummus?
NO NEED TO PEEL THE SKIN OFF!

INGREDIENTS FOR THE ADZUKI BEAN HUMMUS
- 150 g Aduzki beans Cooked or Canned
- 1 Tbsp Tahini
- 1 Tbsp Soy sauce
- 1 tsp Curry powder
- 1 tsp Cumin
- 1 tsp Black pepper
- 1 Handful Coriander
HOW TO MAKE ADZUKI BEAN HUMMUS?
Just blend it all up!
If you are using dried adzuki beans:
- Soak the adzuki beans overnight.
- On the next day, drain the beans, and add them to a pressure cooker and cover them in water.
- Cook in the pressure cooker for 25 minutes or until soft.
When you have your cooked beans or canned beans, add all the ingredients to the food processor and blend until it gets a SMOOTH texture.
What if you don't have a food processor?
If you don't have a food processor you can just use a hand blender and it does the job really well!
WHAT DO YOU EAT IT WITH?
I get asked quite a lot what is the best way to eat hummus? I would say, just try out several ways to see what you like the most!
- Pitta bread
- Corn bread
- In a sandwich with roasted vegetables and sundried tomatoes
- Chopped carrots or cucumber
- Pizza topping (sounds weird, I know but give it a go!)
