Green Goddess Hummus

Green goddess hummus is creamy, flavorful, and packed with fresh herbs and veggies. It’s a spin on my classic hummus recipe, but adds several greens in the form of spinach, parsley, and green onion. Serve it as an appetizer, spread it onto a wrap, or include it as a sauce in your macro bowl.

Hummus has always been the answer to my snack cravings. Not only is it great for your gut health (with prebiotics and fiber), but it’s versatility is endless. Especially when it comes to flavors.

If you’ve been watching me on Instagram stories, you’ll know how much I love my herb garden. From fresh thyme to parsley and basil, I’ve got quite the selection. So, I thought it was about time to create the perfect green goddess hummus.

This green goddess hummus includes spinach, parsley, and green onions. But, feel free to get creative with your mix of herbs! A few other herbs I might suggest to use are basil, dill, cilantro, thyme, tarragon or mint.

How To Make Green Hummus

You can make this recipe in a food processor or high-powered blender. I always prefer the latter for the smoothest and creamiest texture.

  • Add the chickpeas to a high-powered blender and make sure to reserve the liquid.
  • Chop the herbs and toss them into the blender.
  • Add the other hummus ingredients to the blender, including the spinach, tahini, lemon juice, olive oil and garlic clove.
  • Blend everything together for a minute or until it has the perfect creamy consistency.
  • Garnish with diced walnuts and herbs for that added crunch.

How Long Does Hummus Last?

Fresh hummus can last up to a week in the fridge, if kept in a sealed container. You can also freeze your hummus in airtight containers for future use. Just thaw in the fridge before you’d like to enjoy.

Green hummus is creamy, delicious, and packed with herbs and veggies. It's a popular hummus recipe variation that's tasty as a snack or spread on a wrap.

Ingredients

  • 30 oz canned chickpeas (garbanzo beans), drained with liquid reserved (I use two 15oz cans)
  • 1/3 cup chickpea liquid, or more, as needed
  • 1/2 cup tahini
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 cup spinach, moderately packed
  • 1/2 cup roughly chopped parsley or other herbs
  • 2 lemons, juiced
  • 1 green onion, roughly chopped
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Garnish

  • olive oil, chopped herbs, chopped walnuts and sesame seeds

Instructions

  • Add all the ingredients to your Vitamix or high-powered blender and secure the lid. Remove the lid cap and insert the tamper.
  • Turn the blender on high for 30 seconds (or more for a creamier texture) and use the tamper to push the hummus into the blades. Add more chickpea liquid (aquafaba), if desired, for a softer hummus.
  • Add the hummus to a serving plate and garnish with olive oil, chopped herbs, chopped walnuts and sesame seeds.

Lisa's Tips

  • Feel free to add more herbs if you want more of the herb flavor to pop.

  1. I just tried it today! My husband and I really enjoyed it. Thank you for the lovely recipe. 

    • Hi Kim – I am so glad you and your husband enjoyed this hummus! It’s definitely been a hit. I might also suggest trying out my other hummus recipes if you haven’t yet :)

  2. Hi Lisa, this recipe is truly in a ‘goddess’ category: it’s just perfect.
    Have you ever made hommous with sesame seeds/oil directly in the recipe instead of store-bought tahini or homemade? I will probably experiment with this idea, but was wondering if you had ever done that. I bought some tahini to try this out quickly, but I would guess that I mix everything together in the Vitamix?

  3. Lisa, your recipes are so consistently amazing! Just made this hummus last night, had to sub in dill for cilantro, and I really like garlic, so we added another clove. This hummus is wonderful! We served it as you recommended with olive oil drizzle and chopped walnuts. It received rave reviews and will surely be a staple snack in our home. I would love to see you do a garlic lovers or perhaps a chocolate hummus too. I look forward to trying the roasted red pepper hummus recipe as well.
    I just want to thank you for your site, recipe content and videos. I wish I could have learned to truly eat healthy years ago. I thought eating healthy was DIET Coke and BAKED potato chips or 100 calorie Snack Packs! You are so knowledgeable and informative. You are helping me and many others revolutionize our family`s eating habits and health. I continually come back to “Downshiftology” since discovering you and will keep doing so.
    Right now, I have my apple topping cooking and will be making your Paleo Pancakes shortly.
    (Your Fall Meal Prep is just full of wholesome deliciousness.) Thank you, again.
    Sincerely,
    Kara
