More Hummus Recipes


  • 1 15-ounce can chickpeas
  • 1 cup (or half 16oz can) cranberry sauce
  • 2 tablespoons tahini
  • 1 garlic clove, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1/2 cup fresh cranberries, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice


In a food processor, combine all ingredients except for chopped fresh cranberries. Blend until smooth and creamy.

Add about 3/4 of the fresh cranberries and continue to blend until desired consistency. You want it to be creamy, yet thick, like a typical dip.

Place mixture in serving dish and garnish with remaining chopped cranberries.

For a variation, 1/2 cup chopped nuts may be added to either the mixture before processing, as a garnish, or both.
