Pistachio Hummus Recipe


  • 1 can (15 oz) chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1/2 cup shelled pistachios
  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2-3 tablespoons water (adjust for desired consistency)

  4. Taste and Adjust:

    • Taste the hummus and adjust the seasonings if needed. You can add more salt, lemon juice, or olive oil according to your preference.
  5. Serve:

  6. Enjoy:

    • Serve the pistachio hummus with pita bread, vegetable sticks, or your favorite crackers. It also makes a tasty spread for sandwiches or wraps.
