Maca Hummus

We love adding Maca to hummus.  You can simply stir Maca powder into a store bought hummus, but if you have more time, you might enjoy trying this recipe.   We've adapted this recipe slightly from Julie's at The Simple Veganistamaca-hummus.jpg


  •     1 can chickpeas (garbanzo beans)(15 0z), drained and rinsed or 1 1/2 cups cooked
  •     4 tablespoons tahini
  •     1/4 cup water (+ 2 tablespoons as needed)
  •     1 small garlic clove or 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  •     juice of 1 or 2 lemons, to taste
  •     2 t Maca powder
  •     1/2 to 1 teaspoon cumin
  •     1 tablespoon roasted pine nuts, optional
  •     1/2 teaspoon himalayan salt, or to taste


Place all ingredients in food processor and blend until desired consistency. Taste for flavor adding anything here and there that you like….garlic, lemon, salt, cumin. Depending on the size of your lemons or how many you used, you may like to add the extra 2 tablespoons of water for slightly thinner consistency.   Serve with toppings of choice or plain.  Garnishes here are chickpeas, pine nuts, chopped parsley and a dash of smoked paprika.

We hope that you've enjoyed this recipe.  Please see our main Maca Recipes page for more inspiration.  And if you have a recipe of your own to share let us know.
