Garlic Scape Hummus

  • Author: Joybilee Farm
  • Prep Time: 10
  • Total Time: 10 minutes
  • Yield: 3 cups 1x


This hummus recipe has a lemony-garlic flavour that’s a little more pungent. If you prefer it with less garlic taste, use 8 to 10 garlic scapes or 1 garlic clove, instead of the 15 garlic scapes that the recipe calls for.


  • Zest and juice from 1 lemon
  • 2 cups of cooked chickpeas or 1 can of garbanzo beans/chickpeas
  • 1015 garlic scapes, chopped (if you like it mild use the lower number)
  • ¼ cup tahini (sesame seed butter)
  • 2 tbsp. toasted sesame oil
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Put the garlic scapes, sesame oil, olive oil, lemon juice and lemon zest in the bowl of a food processor and process till smooth.
  • Add tahini and process until well blended.
  • Rinse the chickpeas under cold water until the water runs clear, to remove indigestible starches. Drain well.
  • chickpeas to the food processor mixture ½ cup at a time, and process until smooth.
  • Scrape the side of the food processor bowl to move the unprocessed chickpeas into the blades. (of course, do this with the food processor turned off.)
  • Continue processing the remainder of the chickpeas ½ cup at a time, until the mixture is smooth.
  • Taste it. Add salt and pepper to taste.
