Hummus with Pine Nuts and Parsley

Amanda Haas
Confession- I used to eat organic; store-bought hummus almost every day. I always feel food about myself when I eat it. It's hard to go wrong with chickpeas, olive oil, and garlic. I decided to make my own to see if it was that much better. The truth? You tell me! Serve with sliced cucumbers, if desired.
Prep Time 20 mins
Servings 2 cups


  • Two 15-oz cans chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 3 Tbsp lemon juice, plus more as needed
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 2 tsp za'atar
  • Kosher salt
  • 1 cup water
  • 4 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 Tbsp tahini
  • 1 Tbsp pine nuts, toasted (see notes)
  • 1 tsp chopped parsley


  • Place the chickpeas, lemon juice, garlic, za'atar, and 1 1/2 tsp salt in the bowl of a food processor.
  • Pulse to combine, then scrape down the sides of the bowl.
  • Add 1/2 cup if the water, 2 Tbsp of the olive oil, and the tahini. Process until the mixture is creamy, adding up to 1/2 cup of the remaining water, 2 Tbsp at a time, processing after each addition until the mixture is the consistency you like. Taste, adding more lemon juice and salt if desired.
  • Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks. Spoon the hummus into a serving bowl and top with the remaining 2 Tbsp olive oil, the toasted pine nuts, and parsley.


Notes: To toast any type of nut or seed quickly, warm a skillet over medium heat. Once the skillet is hot, add the nuts and stir constantly until they're browned and fragrant, 4 to 5 minutes.
