There’s a chance I’m making a gross generalization here, but if you were to poll healthy food bloggers about the food they eat most, I have a feeling it would be hummus.

Hummus is one of those recipes that is always convenient to have on hand. It’s the perfect pairing for veggies and crackers! While it’s easy to just grab a container at the store, I love making homemade hummus. It’s super easy to make, allows you to add in any flavors and ingredients you want and allows you to skip the added preservatives that most store-bought versions include.

This Lemon Hemp Hummus is hands-down one of my favourite recipe I’ve made this year. I basically demolished a bowl in one sitting. No shame in my hummus-eating-game!

It’s unbelievably tasty, has heart-healthy omega fatty acids from the hemp hearts, protein from the chickpeas and a zesty lemon flavour. Have I convinced you to give homemade hummus a try?

Here’s What You Need

  • Hemp hearts – hemp hearts are shelled hemp seeds. They’re packed with plant-based protein, healthy fats and other essential nutrients.
  • chickpeas – also known as garbanzo beans! Pick up a can of pre-cooked beans for ease. Make sure you drain and rinse well before using.
  • garlic cloves – I love the savory addition of garlic in this hummus.
  • tahini – a key ingredient for hummus!
  • olive oil – just a little liquid to help bring the mixture together.
  • lemon zest + juice – the star flavors of the dish. Make sure you use freshly-squeezed lemon juice!
  • salt + pepper – to bring all of the flavors together.
  • cumin – the perfect spice pairing to the rest of the ingredients.

STEP 3: Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to one week.
