Let's add color to your table and greens into your meal! This Easy Green Hummus is a festive and tasty way to make sure you're filling up with nutritious, flavorful, plant-based protein.


  • 1 (15-ounce can) garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained well
  • 1/4 cup runny raw tahini (oils well incorporated throughout)
  • 1 lemon, juiced (~23 tablespoons fresh lemon juice)
  • 1 cup crushed ice (trust me!)
  • 1 large clove raw peeled garlic OR 4 cloves roasted garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine salt (or more to taste)
  • 1-2 handfuls fresh parsley leaves, fresh dill or spinach or a combination of the three
  • Garnish ideas: caramelized onions, Italian flat leaf parsley (large stems removed and leaves finely chopped), dill, lemon, extra virgin olive oil, and/or microgreens


  1. Add all ingredients to a high speed blender.  Process for one minute.  Scrape down the sides with a mini spatula and process again until smooth and creamy and no ice chunks or parsley/dill/spinach bits remain.  If it is too thick add up to 1/4 cup filtered water 1 tablespoon at a time.  
  2. Taste and adjust flavors as needed (you may want to add more lemon, salt, tahini or garlic).  
  3. Transfer the hummus using the spatula to a serving dish and garnish with a dusting of chopped Italian flat leaf parsley, a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil and a sprinkle of microgreens if desired. 
  4. Store leftovers in an airtight container in your refrigerator for up to one week.
