Green Hummus Parsley

Green Parsley Hummus

Have you ever seen green hummus? I hadn’t until I made this parsley hummus. This green hummus is tasty as a dip with chopped veggies or chips, as a topping for a salad or as a spread on a cracker. A home-made one is better than a store-bought one.
What got me making this is I had a very big bag of parsley given to me and had to think of something new to make with it. Usually it is just part of a salad or soup or stew. I also made Parsley Pesto which is so good.
Time for cheerful green goodness hummus for a snack or appetizer.

  • 1 1 /2 cups parsley packed
  • 1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice plus more to taste
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 clove garlic small
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 2 cups cooked chickpeas drained and rinsed
  • paprika to taste
  • Himalayan salt to taste
  • 1/2 cup light tahini


  • Boil the chickpeas in a pot covered in water until soft, or if you are tight for time you can always use canned ones but I prefer not to. When the chickpeas are soft drain them and rinse them until they are cool. 
  • Lightly chop the parsley and chop the garlic.
  • Blend the first 6 ingredients together.
  • When it is fully smooth, add a few chickpeas in at a time.
  • Blend and then keep adding more until they are all blended together smoothly.
  • Remove everything from the blender and place it into a mixing bowl.
  • Add some paprika and Himalayan salt to taste.
  • Now mix in the tahini.
  • There you are, you have a green parsley hummus.


I use only healthy ingredients for all of my recipes: olive oil, lemon, water, garlic, chickpeas, Paprika, Himalayan Salt, tahini.
