Lemon Garlic Hummus

This easy, vegan lemon garlic hummus is full of savory, delicious flavor, and comes together in less than 10 minutes! Perfect for a party or for snacking.

Prep Time 10 minutes


  • 1 15 oz Can of Chickpeas
  • 3 Cloves Garlic
  • 2-3 Tbs Fresh Squeezed Lemon Juice
  • 1/2 Tbs Fresh Lemon Zest
  • 1/4 Cup Tahini
  • 2 Tbs Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1/2 Tsp Sea Salt
  • Lots of Fresh Cracked Black Pepper
  • 1/4 Tsp Turmeric optional, for color


  1. In a food processor, combine all ingredients. Start with 2 Tbs lemon juice - you can always add more later.

  2. Blend everything in the food processor on high until hummus is smooth and fluffy - it might take a minute or two. Taste, and adjust seasonings as necessary. I added a little extra black pepper. Also, feel free to add the additional 1 Tbs of lemon juice if you want things to be nice and zingy.

  3. Serve hummus in a bowl with a drizzle of olive oil and fresh cracked black pepper on top. It's delicious with carrots or pita chips!

  4. Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

The turmeric here is totally optional, but I love that it lends this hummus a sunny yellow color! Also, the hummus will keep in the fridge for about 4-5 days.
