In our small team of foodies, pickles are definitely a fan favorite. So much so, that our Marketing Associate, Evelina, has even designed a range of wearable snacks, including these uber cool Pickle Socks.
So, in our kitchen adventures, we decided we needed to experiment with some new hummus recipes and came up with this Pickle Hummus Dip. So long as you have a few key ingredients in your pantry, this is a three minute recipe, and well worth pulling out your food processor for! We topped our hummus with some fresh tomatoes, peppers, extra pickles and a dash of olive oil! There’s no rules here - top your hummus with any kind of fresh or roasted vegetable or serve alone with pita chips or fresh bread. Watch us make it on Youtube and Reels.
This dip will last in your fridge for up to 4 days.
1 can of cooked chickpeas, drained. Of course you can also cook fresh chickpeas (pre-soaked), but we've never been disappointed with canned chickpeas and it saves an extra step!
½ c Seed + Mill Organic Tahini, (pro tip: use our Organic Roasted Garlic Tahini & skip the clove of garlic. Another handy time saver!)
2-3 tbs olive oil, plus extra for drizzling
½ c dill pickles
Juice of 1 lemon
1 clove of garlic (feel free to skip if your using our Roasted Garlic Tahini)
2-3 tbsp water (only if needed)
2-3 tbsp chopped fresh dill
Salt & pepper, to taste
Place all of the ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth.
After 1-2 mins in the blender, scrape down the sides and taste to adjust for flavor. You might want to add some extra salt, pepper or pickle juice, for flavor.
If your hummus seems too thick, you can add 1-2 more tbs water to loosen. The texture should be light and pillowy.
- To serve, we always spread the hummus over a plate, using a spatula to create cavities, that we will with an extra drizzle of tahini, olive oil, spices, fresh herbs - be adventurous! If your hummus feels too loose, adding some extra tahini will help!
- We always enjoy spreading the hummus out on a plate, creating lots of little cavities, to fill with vegetables, olive oil, spices or extra tahini!
