Recipe: Quick and Easy Hempseed Hummus

Hempseed hummus is a great snack food and is popular at parties, picnics and when relaxing with some munchies. This version is simple to make and tasty as well as very healthy- the hempseed provides essential fatty acids and protein, the chickpeas are high in fibre as well as iron and other essential minerals, and the tahini provides calcium.

Tools & ingredients

  • A food processor
  • 2-3 cups canned chickpeas, thoroughly rinsed and drained
  • 1/2 cup tahini (sesame seed paste)
  • 1 fresh lemon, juiced (about 3 tablespoons)
  • 1 clove fresh garlic, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup shelled hempseed
  • 2-3 sprigs fresh parsley, minced (optional)
  • Salt and pepper
  • Olive oil or water


  1. Place all the ingredients except for the parsley, olive oil, salt and pepper into the food processor.
  2. Blend until smooth, slowly adding just enough olive oil or water to create a creamy texture. Olive oil will give a richer, heavier hummus with a more full-bodied flavor; water gives a lighter, low fat result.
  3. Add salt and pepper and blend again, continuing until the seasonings are to your taste. Transfer to a serving bowl and garnish with the fresh parsley.
  4. Serve with tortilla chips, crudités, or crackers. Hempseed hummus is also delicious on toast!
