Scrumptious Soups: Hummus Soup!

I love hummus. I love soup. So when my friend Sarah of WhyFoodWorks posted this recipe in this month's Real Food Challenge, I knew I had to try it!

The results? Splendid!

Pick one or more toppings for nice flavor and texture.

Hummus Soup
  • 3 16-ounce cans chickpeas (aka garbonzo beans), drained and rinsed
  • 4 cups water (or broth)
  • 3 tablespoons tahini
  •  Juice from 2 lemons
  • 2 teaspoons cumin
  • 2 teaspoons  smoked paprika
  • salt and pepper, to taste
Topping ideas
  • Kalamata olives
  • Sesame seeds
  • Chopped parsley
  • Smoked paprika
  • Chives
  • Feta cheese
  • Lemon juice
  1. Add everything to a large pot and heat over medium-high until bubbly. 
  2. Use an immersion blender to puree soup until smooth and velvety.
  3. Ladle into a bowl and garnish with all the toppings your heart desires!

  1. We will be making this, no doubt! A couple change I would make:

    - Starting with just a little olive oil in the pot, toss in some garlic for a minute or two, then add whole cumin seeds and smoked paprika (adding these to the oil releases their flavors more vibrantly than just putting them in the liquid)
    - Probably adding crushed red pepper, too, because, obviously
    - More garnish options: a dollop of fat free yogurt or cashew cream (our new favorite thing)
