Zesty Hummus

Zesty Hummus

Like my previous recipe, fresh lemon and lemon zest are KEY to making this so delicious! I also think the balsamic vinegar gives it a great tangy sweetness. This is husband-approved! Better than store bought 🙂

Zesty Hummus

Makes about 3 cups


  • 3 cups cooked or canned (rinsed) chickpeas
  • 1 lemon, juice and zest
  • 1 ½ tbsp. tahini
  • 1 tbsp miso
  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • ½ tsp onion powder
  • ¼ to ½ tsp sea salt (to taste)
  • Water to reach desired consistency (I used about 1/3 cup)



Blend all ingredients together in a food processor, scraping down the sides and adding water as needed. Feel free to add extra lemon or balsamic, or maybe some fresh herbs! Enjoy with veggies and crackers.
