Lemon Hummus

I first had lemon hummus two years ago at a friend’s Christmas party. I still have no idea what that exact recipe was but this tastes pretty similar and I’m happy about it!

Lemon Hummus:

  • 1 15 oz can of chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1-2 cloves garlic
  • 2-3 fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/2 tbsp lemon zest
  • 2 tbsp creamy tahini
  • 2 tbsp EVOO
  • 2 tbsp filtered water
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • Dash of black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric optional, for color

Quick and easy method: Toss everything in a blender or food processor and blend until smooth (I don’t removed the chickpeas shells). Stopping to scrape down the mixture off the side of the blender if needed. Add a little more water or tahini if the mixture is too thick.

Longer method: Drain and rinse the chickpeas and add to a small pot of boiling water. Let boil for 10-15 minutes, or until the chickpeas have softened. This method makes super creamy hummus! Drain and rinse the chickpeas again and then add to a blender or food processor with everything else and blend until smooth.

Have you tried lemon hummus before? I’m seriously hooked and I can’t wait until I get another can of chickpeas to make this again. Enjoy!
