Dip Week: Hump-Day Hummus


Dip week continues with another fresh recipe. Today we’re plunging into a classic option—hummus.


Hummus is of the healthiest, tastiest, and most versatile dips known to vegetables. You can dress it up with seasonal roasted peppers, sun-dried tomatoes, olives, or pesto, but we like it best made below.


The classic dip below pairs well with Southwest Spice Peas Please. A match made in…the Peeled Snacks test kitchen.



1 15oz can chickpeas (garbanzo beans), drained and rinsed

¼ cup roasted tahini

1 medium garlic clove, peeled and smashed

1 lemon, juiced

¼ cup water

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil



Combine beans, tahini garlic, half of the lemon juice, water, olive oil, and a large dash of salt in a food processor until smooth. Pulse in more water, a tablespoon at a time, if it seems too thick. Add more salt and lemon juice to taste. Serve drizzled with olive oil.
