Ready to prepare some amazing pine nut hummus in just 10 minutes? All we need is a few classic ingredients to make this delicious dip. You can take this hummus to the table for an awesome appetizer or snack.



For the Hummus

  • 1 can (15 ounces|425 grams) chickpeas ( garbanzo beans), rinsed and drained
  • 3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice or to your taste
  • 2 tablespoons toasted pine nuts
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoon ice cold water

For the Hummus Topping

  • 1-2 tablespoons toasted pine nuts
  • 2-3 tablespoons  pomegranate seeds
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika or sumac
  • 2-3 tablespoons olive oil
  • Fresh parsley, finely chopped to garnish


  • Drain chickpeas in a fine mesh strainer under cool running water until water runs clear.
  • Add the lemon juice, pine nuts, garlic, salt and cumin  to your food processor. Pulse until garlic and pine nuts are finely chopped.
  • Add the tahini, olive oil and chickpeas. Process until smooth, scraping down the sides with a spatula as needed. With the food processor running, drizzle ice cold water. Process until creamy.
  • If your hummus is too thick, add 1-2 extra tablespoons ice cold water and process until you reach the desired consistency. Taste test and adjust flavors if necessary.
  • To serve, top with pomegranate seeds and toasted pine nuts. Drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle with paprika or sumac. Garnish with fresh parsley.
  • Serve and enjoy!



You can store homemade hummus for up to seven days in the fridge in an airtight glass container. Hummus will spoil more quickly in plastic, metal, or an open container. If your hummus has an off-putting odor, or it looks slimy, it’s not safe to eat and you’ll need to throw it out.

We don’t recommend freezing hummus. Freezing can separate the oils in the hummus, changing its consistency.
