Moroccan Spiced Hummus

An easy and healthy hummus recipe made with whole food ingredients, free from preservatives, gluten or dairy. 

For a Moroccan inspired twist I add spices and use lime in place of the usual lemon juice. 

Nourish 101:

Moroccan Spiced Hummus 


  • 400g canned chickpeas, drained and rinsed (I use BPA free can & organic)
  • Juice of 2 limes
  • 2 tablespoons tahini (hulled)
  • 1/4 cup garlic infused olive oil
  • 2 tsps Moroccan spice mix (I used Mingle Seasoning- Sahara; add more to liking)
  • Pinch good quality salt and pepper 


  1. Process all ingredients in blender (I use a Vitamix) or food processor, scraping down sides as needed. 
  2. Serve chilled. Store any leftovers in an airtight container in refrigerator.

Recipe Tips:

  • Instead of fresh garlic you can also use garlic infused olive oil as your liquid component. A great option for people sensitive to garlic.
