I thought it was time for a greens-infused Green Chickpea Hummus recipe. Bright green goodness…served on a cracker! If the hummus color of this recipe causes you to pause, don’t worry, it’s all wholesome ingredients (think power greens!).

However, if you’re into hummus recipes as much as we are, take a look at our different hummus recipes, such as this Vegan Smoky Hummus recipe. Or maybe you’d like to try my Carrot Hummus.

How to Make Green Hummus Recipe

It’s easy to make the best hummus recipes! Begin with combining these hummus ingredients in a food processor:

Power greens and other ingredients are in a food processor.
  • chickpeas
  • tahini (sesame seed butter)
  • garlic powder
  • lemon juice
  • tamari or soy sauce
  • water
  • olive oil
  • salt
  • oregano
  • basil
  • power greens, such as spinach, kale, and/or chard.

If you’d rather not use garlic powder, but feel fresh garlic can be a bit too strong, I highly recommend Garlic Confit. Both the slow roasted garlic and the garlic oil are perfect to add to hummus!

Pulse these ingredients for a few seconds. Then use a spatula to push down any ingredients from the side of the bowl and pulse again. Repeat this process until you have a desired consistency.

Transfer to a bowl and serve with chips, crackers, pita bread, and/or chopped veggies.

If you’re unfamiliar with tahini, this article from Health talks about how to use tahini in your cooking. You can find tahini in the International or Health Food Aisles of grocery stores.

This is a really unique hummus recipe! However, you could make it even more interesting by transforming it into a green goddess hummus by adding some chopped chives to the recipe too!

Flavored hummus recipes are easy to make! I’ve even served hummus as a topping for pasta! It’s also delicious to use hummus as a condiment on veggie sandwiches. Check out these over 40 BEST Vegan Sandwiches recipes!

Sometimes a creamy hummus recipe can be a bit too garlicky. It’s great while you’re eating it, but can leave your breath a little tangy. So this recipe for hummus is high on the spinach and low on the garlic.
