Roasted Red Pepper & Feta Hummus

"Excellent. Usually I prefer the plain chickpea, tahini, garlic and lemon hummus. This lovely recipe retains the bright flavour of the plainer version, but with added depth and complexity."


Super-Creamy Hummus 2.0

Baking soda is a secret hack for creating velvety-smooth hummus. Make it a full meal with sautéed mushrooms, pickled onions and plenty of pita.

Grilled Harissa Carrot Hummus

This sweet-and-spicy twist on classic hummus features fresh carrots in addition to canned chickpeas. North African harissa is blended in for spice, while a dusting of aleppo pepper gives it both heat and an extra-vibrant appearance.

Israeli Hummus

"Topped with paprika, dill and parsley. So perfect for an easy dinner spread with pita, carrot sticks, olives, and feta."


Easy Peasy Hummus with Variations

"Nice basic recipe. I added a pint of slow-roasted cherry tomatoes and a teaspoon of cumin to the basic recipe. I served it with Siracha and more olive oil over the top, then used pieces of hot, toasted bagel to scoop up the hummus."

-Mary Ann Nelson E.

Hummus Pizza

"I made this today and wondered why I never thought of it before. I really like the hummus heated up on the warm pita. This was a really quick and delicious and satisfying lunch."


Creamy Roasted Garlic Hummus

"I've tried many different hummus recipes before but this one is the absolute best! We love, love, love garlic... the hummus had so much flavor and was so light and creamy!"

-Vino p.o. prn

Fan-Favorite Hummus

"I couldn't help but lick the inside of the food processor! I decided to make a few varieties by adding roasted red peppers to a batch and kalamata olives to another batch. Delicious!"

-Jen Fon

Super Healthy Hummus

"So delicious! I'm not a fan of the recipes with tahini, so I was so happy to find this one. This was super easy to make and the consistency was spot on using my food processor. I will be using this in my veggie wraps!"


Pink Hummus

A splash of beet juice adds earthiness and a light pink color to this hummus from the 2018 cookbook "Platters and Boards" by Shelly Westerhausen and Wyatt Worcel.

"The Best" Hummus

"This was fabulous! After blending this in my food processor I pushed the mixture through a sieve with a flat spoon and it made for a silky texture that I get from my local Mediterranean restaurant, only better."


Hummus Amongus

"This is an excellent hummus recipe! I used reserved chickpea water to get the right thickness and also added a dash of cayenne pepper for some additional kick!"


Spinach-Garlic-Edamame Hummus

"I brought this for lunch today with pita and veggies. This dish might be the world's most perfect food, if you're a fan of hummus. The creaminess of the edamame and tahini, the slight courseness of the garbanzo beans and the fresh veggie essence combined with the slight bite of of the red pepper flakes just make me happy."


However-U-Spell-It Hummus

"The smoothest, creamiest hummus I have ever made! I did skin the chickpeas. I loved how the yogurt gave the hummus a creamier texture and it did make it lighter in texture as well as color."


Hummus with a Lemon Twist

"This turned out so smooth, and a little fluffy. It has a great classic hummus flavor, with a nice smokiness to it from the cumin. I think I'll have the leftovers for lunch. Yum!"


"Authentic" Hummus

"I love it with the lemon, but like it even more with lime! Excellent-tasting hummus!"


Heavenly Hummus with Homemade Tahini

"This was just exceptional hummus! I omitted the parsley but kept the rest of the recipe as it was written. Creamy and delicious served with pita triangles and grilled pita wedges."


Roasted Red Pepper Hummus with Pine Nuts

"This is a delicious and beautiful-to-look-at hummus. I loved the roasted peppers in the recipe. From previous experience making hummus I knew that 12 — 15 cloves of garlic would be too much garlic for me, so I used two cloves... perfect. A wonderful variation of a classic."


Turkish-Style Hummus with Pine Nuts

"This hummus is so good. I love the addition of cayenne and pine nuts. It was easy to make and with ingredients I always have in the pantry."

-Baby Kato

Spinach Hummus Dip

"I have never made hummus before. Had no idea it would be so easy. Kicked up the garlic and lemon a bit but otherwise made as directed."

-Az B8990

Cuban Black Bean Hummus

"This was a huge hit with my friends and family! It was delicious and very easy to make! I will definitely make this again."

-FCR Gal

Beet Hummus

"Oh man, this is so good. I made it last night and served it with cucumber slices and pita chips. It was a filling, healthy meal. I loved the idea of using beets for hummus and it was not only delicious but quite pretty."


Pumpkin Hummus

"Just fabulous, so easy, healthy and a hit with everyone at my party! If you're short on time, you can just whip up the hummus, and skip making the pita chips. Goes great with crackers, tortilla chips, fresh raw veggies or baguette slices."


Edamame Hummus with Pita Crisps

"I love this recipe. I'm allergic to chic peas but love hummus, so this was a great. I made a meal out of it by putting it on my rice cakes and seaweed thins."


Black-Eyed Pea Hummus with Chorizo

"The chorizo got a bit lost behind the other flavors, which was a bit disappointing for me since I love chorizo. It was still very good otherwise though! This makes enough for a small army."


Jalapeño-Lime Hummus

"So good! This is a staple in our household, even my 18-month-old son loves it. We substitute mild pepperoncini for the jalapeños so that he can enjoy it as well. The perfect snack!"


Tangy Garlic Hummus

"Easy and delicious! I spread the hummus on a plate, and drizzled with extra virgin olive oil, then garnished with a sprig of parsley and a sprinkle of paprika. The ingredients are right on... I didn't change a thing!"


Green Avocado Hummus

"This is one of the best dips I have ever had. Seriously! I am a huge fan of guacamole and hummus and this was a perfect blend of both. Absolutely delicious!"


Fresh Basil & White Bean Hummus

"What a deliciously flavorful hummus! It was so quick and easy to make, too. I think this would go so well in a veggie wrap; all of that lovely flavor would carry through so well!"


Spinach & Artichoke Hummus

"Very good! I did punch it up a bit with sea salt and pepper, and threw in a handful of fresh oregano. I like hummus creamy for dipping, so I pulsed the artichoke hearts along with everything else. For a sandwich filling, though, I'd do as the recipe suggests and hand-mix them after combining everything else."

-La Dilettante

Chipotle Hummus

"Smoky flavor with a subtle heat. I love hummus and try new variations when I get the chance. This is one of my family's new favorites."


Tahini-Free Hummus

"I have made this twice and love it! I got hooked on hummus with the store-bought stuff, and this is oh-so-easy and extra-tasty. I took the advice of the other reviewers and added some chili powder and cumin for a nice round flavor."


Carrot Hummus

"Oh wow, this was an excellent basic recipe. The carrots blend in completely."


Peanut Butter & Jelly Hummus

"I was so intrigued by this recipe I just had to try it and I'm glad I did - it's terrific! I know that this is a dessert hummus, but I enjoyed it for breakfast with baked pita crackers and a nice cup of green tea... yum!"
