Garlic Lime Hummus

I love having hummus in the fridge, I pretty much have it in there at all times. Hummus is good for sandwiches, wraps, toast, dipping veggies or pretzels and so much more! While my Roasted Beet & Garlic Lemon Hummus is probably my favorite hummus ever (and that says a lot because I truly don’t usually ever like beets!), I love switching it up too.

Today I’m sharing a recipe for my Garlic Lime Hummus. In this one the garlic is more potent than in the Roasted Beet & Garlic Lemon Hummus (if you’ve made that one). It’s more like a traditional garlic hummus you’d buy at the store with the addition of lime.

This hummus recipe is so easy to make, it only requires a few simple ingredients. Hummus is something that is so easy to make at home! It’s almost as easy as buying it guys, and it’s totally worth it to make your own. All you need to have is a food processor! Get my easy Garlic Lime Hummus recipe below.


Can you use lime instead of lemon for hummus?

You definitely can use lime instead of lemon for hummus. Lime provides a great flavor alternative to lemon that I think tastes amazing in this Garlic Lime Hummus recipe.

What goes good with garlic hummus?

Garlic hummus goes well with so many things! I like to serve this Garlic Lime Hummus with tortilla chips, crackers, pretzels, carrots, celery, bell peppers, cucumbers, broccoli, cauliflower or any other veggies that sound good!

Why go organic?

You may be wondering why I push organic ingredients for everything, even savory and healthy dishes. Organic ingredients go beyond just health and wellness, and contribute so much to the taste and flavor of a recipe. So, if you think that you’re making something healthy and buying fruits, veggies, or meats so maybe you don’t need to spend the extra to go organic here – let me sway your thinking.

Organic ingredients are made in a more pure way, therefore using no additives, no GMOs, and minimal ingredients. This really allows the true ingredients to shine – and because of that their flavor shines through. Therefore, organic ingredients are more flavorful than their non organic counterparts. So, just because it’s already a healthy recipe, or you’re already buying good for you ingredients – it doesn’t mean you can skip organic! Trust me here, and make the switch. Your body and your taste buds will thank you!

So, I highly recommend that you buy the best organic ingredients for this recipe! You can also shop my Amazon Storefront for all my favorite organic ingredients here. Tip – hover over each ingredient to see the name. And if you want to learn more about organic foods and the difference, read my post here on Food Labels and What They Mean.
