Ever get invited to a last minute function and feel the need to whip up something to bring, but don’t know what to prepare? I (and this horseradish hummus) gotchu.
This hummus takes all of 5 minutes to make and is guaranteed to be a crowd pleaser. And, if you’re like me, you more than likely already have these ingredients in your pantry, as these are all staples in mine. Can you say, added bonus??
This recipe was developed on a whim after being invited to a game night at my friends a while back, and I think it’s safe to say I won’t be purchasing store-bought hummus again any time soon (well, unless it’s topping my bowl from Cava…but let’s not count that).
You need to promise me one thing, though. Don’t knock the horseradish until you try it. There is not too much horseradish to the point it makes your eyes water. It is simply there for added flavor and will make your guests diving back in for more until they can figure out what the secret ingredient is 🙂
And I should mention, the friend (along with her boyfriend) who hosted this party is a HUMMUS CONNOISSEUR. Like, to the point where the two of them drunk eat hummus after a night out. So the fact that this got their stamp of approval is proof you need to try it. Just sayin’.
This super simple dip will be a crowd favorite at your next party, especially with the little zing and boosted flavor the horseradish gives it. The best part about making your own hummus? You control how chunky or smooth you want it to be. As for me? I love it chunky.
- 1 can of chickpeas, rinsed and drained
- 4 cloves of garlic
- 1/4 cup + 3 TBSP Chosen Foods avocado oil
- 2 TBSP Tahini (I use Trader Joe’s…shocking, I know)
- 2 TSP Horseradish
- 1 TSP garlic powder
- Juice of 1/2 lemon
- Salt/pepper to taste
Put all ingredients in a food processor and pulse until you get the desired consistency.
- Equipment needed – Food processor (or high powered blender)
- If you want a smoother hummus, add the chickpeas in a little at a time, pulsing until smooth, then add more, and so on (thanks to my boss for the awesome tip!).
- To serve, I recommend topping it with a little more avocado oil and pink sea salt.
