Asparagus Hummus

Processed with Rookie

My family and I love purchasing and making fresh hummus in our house.  I was interested in trying to make  a new flavor. So I went ahead and made an asparagus hummus to enjoy with some crackers and veggies.  The flavor of the asparagus really comes out.  I think this is just another way to add more nutrition to your hummus.  This hummus has a refreshing finish too.  Enjoy as a snack or with your next get together.


2 (15.5 oz) Can of Chickpeas, drained and rinsed

10 Asparagus Spears

3 Garlic cloves

Salt & Pepper, to taste

1/2 to 1 cup of Extra Virgin Olive oil

Juice and Zest of 1 Lemon



In a medium pot bring water to a boil and add asparagus. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes. In a medium bowl with cold water and ice add asparagus. This will stop the cooking process.

Take a food processor and add chickpeas, olive oil, salt, pepper, garlic cloves, asparagus, lemon zest and lemon juice. Blend for 2 minutes until everything is well combined and smooth.

Pour into a bowl and enjoy.

    This looks great. Do you not need tahini?

    1. Usually some hummus are made with Tahini. I made this simple with no tahini. I hope you enjoy.

        Thanks. Just made it and used a little bit of tahini instead of olive oil. Delicious!

    Reblogged this on Mel's Mosaic and commented:
    Just made this recipe. Delicious!! The only changes I made were that I used a little bit of tahini instead of the olive oil. I also made half the recipe vs the whole. Great, unique flavor!! Thanks for the recipe, Homemade Delish!

  5. It’s hard to come by well-informed people about this subject, however, you seem like you know what you’re talking about!


  6. I love hummus but never tried with asparagus. I’ll try this recipe!
