This Lemon Dill Hummus is quickly becoming my favorite thing. I’ve been spreading it on crackers, dipping pita chips and veggies into it, and frankly, I can not get enough!

Even though it’s only April, the past week has been unseasonably warm in Oregon (low 80’s, which I would have laughed at as “warm” when we lived in California!).

The warm weather has led to my kids wanting to be outside constantly, and I haven’t been wanting to spend much time in the kitchen. So having this delicious lemon dill hummus on hand has been a lifesaver! I can grab a little and head back outside to enjoy this amazing weather.

Did I mention how quick and easy it is to make? 5 minutes. Seriously. Just add the ingredients to a food processor, and blend until smooth, adding a little water depending on what consistency you like. Add more water for a smoother, creamier hummus.

You will be blown away by the flavor of this Lemon Dill hummus! It’s fresh, savory and has a beautiful yellow color.

  • Dip vegetable sticks into it, like carrots, cucumbers, broccoli, etc.
  • Make a sandwich by spreading the hummus on bread slices and fill with lettuce and tomatoes
  • Spread it on fancy crackers
  • Thin it out with water and use as a salad dressing
  • Bring it to a potluck, barbecue or serve it as an appetizer and watch it disappear!

  1. This was so simple and delicious–my kind of recipe. I didn’t have any turmeric so I added a 1/4 tsp paprika and 1/4 tsp cumin. Yum!

  2. This was my first time making homemade hummus and it was DELICIOUS!! Will definitely be making tons of more batches in the future.

  3. I just have to pop in and say I’ve been making this recipe of yours for years and it’s always a summer time crowd pleaser! It’s so easy and I love how different it is from most traditional hummuses. Highly recommend!

  4. The fresh dill I had growing in my backyard garden led me to your delicious recipe. I love that it has turmeric hiding in there as well, brightening the color and adding nutrients. Well done!

    1. That’s fine to leave it out, I would just add water or a little olive oil to make up for the moisture loss. Thanks!

    2. of course! add any other ‘buttered’ seed you can handle:
      use e.g., almond butter, even tho almonds aren’t seeds, are they/
      or use sunflower seeds, ground into a butter. peanuts would work, tho they’re legumes.
      pumpkin, or pepita, seeds would e kick ass!

    3. I’d suggest adding some Nutritional Yeast to make up for any flavor loss from leaving out any nut or seed butter like Tahini. Heck, add some either way… it REALLY makes Hummus POP! 😉

  5. I made this hummus, and it IS delicious. It’s also really easy to make. I love the idea of thinning it for a salad dressing. The color is beautiful with the added turmeric!
