Herb Hummus


I’ve got a spiced take on homemade hummus. This herb-filled hummus is a protein packed and a perfect to-go snack option.

Homemade hummus with herbs

Hummus has long been one of my favorite dishes, both for meals and snacks. Sometimes I eat carrot sticks JUST so I can have some hummus. And nothing beats homemade hummus… especially this detoxifying recipe from our spring cleanse.

Chickpeas are an awesome source of plant-based protein + iron, but we’ve ramped up the nutrient content of this yummy dip even more by including a mix of fresh herbs. Serve with veggies for dipping, or slather some on collard greens or romaine lettuce leaves for a yummy veggie wrap!

    Love this hummus. Definitely making it again n again. It’s football weekend great healthy snack.

  2. Marsha says:

    This sounds good, but I have 3 questions: First of all, except for end of summer in Denver, I never see fresh dill in the stores. Second, I REALLY don’t like cilantro. Could I use all parsley? How do you measure a cup of fresh herbs? Packed? Loose? Is there an equivalent weight?

    • SGS Rawkstar Carissa says:

      Hey Marsha,

      If you don’t have fresh dill you can use dried dill. Yes, if you do not like cilantro you can leave that part out completely. For the measurement we do not have a weight. We usually suggest a handful as a cup or loosely pack it into a measuring cup.

      Hope that helps!

  3. This recipe rocks! I had it as part of the Fresh Start – 21 Day Cleanse and it is really great for dipping healthy eats into – like cherry tomatoes, celery, baby carrots, you name it! Just yummy.

    The best hummus I have ever had!

    This hummus is amazing…who would have thought that cilantro and parsley would make such good friends? I love all of the interesting combos that SGS comes up with. My taste buds are never bored! Thanks for knocking it out of the park yet again, ladies!

    • SGS Rawkstar Amanda says:

      Isn’t it crazy, Lindsey. When I first made this, I thought – whoa, that’s a lot of green. But they honestly elevate each other and make an amazing flavor-packed hummus!
