Spiced Hummus

Spiced Hummus ++ the pear and  plum

I totally take it back. Turns out Tahini is awesome…. at least in this hummus that my sweet husband created.


  • 3 Garlic Cloves
  • 1/4 Cup Pistachios (or Cashews)
  • 1 can (15 oz) Garbanzo Beans, rinsed
  • 1/2 tsp Cumin
  • 1 tsp Sumac
  • 1 tsp Fenugreek (optional but i LOVE it)
  • 1 tsp Coriander
  • 1 Lemon, Juiced & Zested
  • 1 T Chopped Dill
  • 1 T Tahini
  • 1/4 Cup Olive Oil
  • Salt & Pepper to taste


  1. Put Garlic in a food processor and pulse until chopped.
  2. Add Lemon juice and scrape the garlic down so it sits in the lemon (You can let it sit for a couple minutes to take some of the heat out.)
  3. Add in nuts and blend until well chopped.
  4. Add the Beans, all the Spices, Lemon Zest, Dill & Tahini and process.
  5. As the machine is running, slowly add the Olive Oil.
  6. Process until smooth and then taste and add Salt & Pepper to your liking.
  7. Sprinkle Sumac on top to make it pretty.
