Crispy Rosemary Hummus is a true favorite! Flash-frying fresh rosemary sprigs in olive oil is a multi-purpose venture. First it crisps-up the tough rubbery rosemary leaves, also mellowing out the overpowering flavor. Second the rosemary perfumes the oil. So when you add the rosemary-infused oil and the crispy leaves to the hummus you get a mild, but well-rounded piny flavor. Plus it takes less than 5 minutes to make!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place the oil in a small skillet over high heat.

  3. Place the garbanzo beans in the food processor with the yogurt, rosemary-infused oil, lemon juice, garlic, salt and pepper.
  4. Puree to desired consistency.
  5. Pull the crispy rosemary leaves off the stems and place them in the food processor. Pulse until the rosemary has worked through the hummus.
