How to make green goddess hummus

Making your own white bean dip at home couldn’t be easier! It essentially requires just four straightforward steps.

  1. Blend the spinach, parsley, avocado, tahini and lemon juice in your food processor until the herbs are minced.
  2. Add the chickpeas and green peas and keep blending to obtain a smooth puree.
  3. Finally, add the rest of the ingredients (spices and liquid) to your food processor. Blend until a creamy and smooth green goddess hummus is formed!
  4. Adjust to taste preference by adding more seasonings if wanted.

Storage & serving suggestions

This creamy green goddess hummus can be enjoyed right away or stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week. It’s also freezer-friendly (instructions below!) and therefore great for meal prep or making in larger batches!

From dipping raw veggies, pita bread or tortilla chips in this avocado spinach hummus to making a delicious healthy vegan grilled cheese, the sky is truly the limit here!

Green goddess hummus looks lovely on a vegan appetizer platter, works as a base on potato pizza crust and can be thinned out to make salad dressing.

Feel free to just spread it on some freshly baked bread or top your favorite veggie bowl with it!

Tips & adjustments

Can you freeze green goddess hummus?

Sure, you can absolutely freeze hummus. Put it into airtight, freezer-safe containers and place it in the freezer for 3 months or longer.

Make sure you don’t fill your containers all the way to the top because the dip might expand as it freezes! You can defrost it at your convenience by thawing your hummus in the fridge overnight or leaving it out at room temperature for a few hours.

You might want to give it a good stir should the hummus separate after thawing!

Why is this green goddess hummus oil-free?

We personally don’t really use any oil when cooking our food from scratch but if you like a touch of olive oil in your green pea hummus, no problem! 

Feel free to add a few tablespoons either to the hummus base while blending or swirl some olive oil into your finished dip for a lovely garnish.

I don’t have any green peas

That’s okay, replace them with the same amount of chickpeas! Likewise, if you only have green peas, you can replace the chickpeas with them! White beans work as well to replace either of these two.

How to make it lower in calories

Replace some or all of the chickpeas with steamed cauliflower or broccoli! You can also just skip the avocado or tahini to reduce some of the fat content.

Additional flavor ideas

Instead of adding fresh parsley, you can add cilantro, basil, dill, thyme or green onion to your green goddess hummus. Spice it up with some hot paprika or more black pepper and add some healthy crunchy nuts or seeds!
