    Dill Hummus



    Poor dill.

    I used to say that mint was an underappreciated herb, but dill, he might just take the cake on that one.


    What do I really use dill in? There is creamy dill dip! Now that’s delicious. My sister brings one over every Christmas Eve and with some pumpernickel bread it sure does hit that Christmas eve spot in my tummy.

    I always think of this dill dip fondly as it starts off the festivities. And of course it makes sure there is a little cushion in my stomach for my second favorite thing on that day...Christmas Eve wine ;) 


    What else has dill??

    Cucumbers and Dill! It's delightfully refreshing thats true, but  where do we go from there??

    Well, why not hummus...yes, a dill flavored hummus with accents of coriander and cumin to round out the dills bright notes. Hmmmm, a new dill dish staple perhaps??? You tell me…





    1 15oz can Garbanzo beans (aka Chickpeas)

    ¼ cup Tahini

    1 tsp cumin

    1 tsp coriander

    1 tsp Salt

    ¼ cup dill

    3 garlic cloves

    1 lemon (juice)

    1/8-1/4 cup olive oil


    Combine all ingredients except oil in a food processor.  Drizzle in olive oil until it’s the consistency that you want. Serve and ENJOY!



    • If you want to use less oil and have a thinner hummus just add a little water
    • The longer the hummus sits the more the flavors come out, especially the dill
    • The Tahini can be optional but you will find it in most big grocery stores in the international isle.
