Easy Hummus Recipe with Lentil Crunch

This easy hummus recipe kicks the standard up a few notches. It’s packed with protein and nutrition and it’s super creamy with an added burst of crunch in every bite. Curious? Check out our recipe below.

You can easily start with your favorite simple store-bought hummus (either an original flavor or something like garlic or lemon garlic) — if you do this, start below the dashed line in the recipe below and just add in the dill and Pro-Chi. I’ve included our recipe for hummus below if you want to start from scratch. I recommend eating it with cucumbers sprinkeld with a bit of salt for an easy, go-to healthy mid-day snack.

Hummus Recipe:

One 15 oz. can chickpeas, drained and rinsed

1/4 C. tahini

1 small clove of garlic, peeled

Juice of one lemon

Splash of siracha

1 T. cold water

3 T. extra virgin olive oil



2 T. fresh dill, chopped

3 T. Simply Salted Pro-Chi Lentil Crunch 

To Make:

Place the chickpeas in a blender or food processor and pulse till crumbled. Add in the next five ingredients and puree until smooth. Slowly add in oil 1 T. at a time and pulse. Season with salt, pulse and taste. Add additional salt if needed.

Remove from processor and place in small bowl. If using store bought hummus, start here. Add dill and 2 T. Pro-Chi, stir to combine. Add remaining 1 T. Pro-Chi over top.

This is an easy hummus recipe that packs a serious protein punch and it’s super delicious. It’s a simple, healthy mid-day snack!
