Lemon Dill Hummus

Photo by Emily Blackman / Recipe made for The Great Vine

It’s winter here in Muskoka — it has been for the past 3 weeks! Hummus is a staple in my family.. however sometimes I am bored of the classic garlic or plain hummus. I always crave fresh flavour in the winter (as we all do!). Adding fresh herbs and lemon is a great way to freshen up a dish. This lemon dill hummus is refreshing and full of protein! Cut up some veggies (my favourite is raw beets!) and get dipping!

Lemon Dill Hummus


1 15oz can chickpeas

1 tsp salt, or to taste

2 garlic cloves

1/3 cup tahini

8 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice

2 Tbsp water (more if too thick)

2 tbsp chopped fresh dill

Olive oil, for drizzling

Optional: 1/2 tsp cayenne for some kick!


1. Add all ingredients to food processor and blend! Add more water if too thick.

2. Top with cayenne for a bit of spice!

Enjoy !
