Fresh Mint Hummus Recipe

Fresh Mint Hummus


Fresh Mint Hummus is so fresh and flavorful, we may not ever eat hummus any other way…. Use the same simple hummus ingredients of skinless chickpeas, garlic, lemon juice, and tahini with a big handful of fresh mint and basil for a hummus that tastes as beautiful as it looks. Finish fresh mint hummus with an excellent olive oil.


1 heaping cup cooked skinless chickpeas
1 clove garlic, green sprout removed
Big pinch kosher salt
20 fresh spearmint leaves
5 to 10 fresh basil leaves
1/4 cup tahini
Juice of 1 lemon
Cool water or chickpea cooking liquid, as needed
excellent olive oil, mint infused!, to finish
1 tablespoon toasted pine nuts
Pinch mint salt or crushed dried mint


1. In the food processor, blitz the chickpeas, garlic, salt, mint and basil until extremely well pulverized, a good 5 minutes, stopping to scrape down the bowl a few times.

2. Add the tahini and process until well blended, then add the lemon juice and process again. Taste the hummus; add water if the hummus is too thick, and add more salt if needed.

3. Spoon the hummus onto one or two small plates. Use the back of a clean spoon to create a well in the center of the hummus. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with pine nuts and dried mint.
