Creamy Bone Broth Hummus

Hummus just became a little more hardcore. Bone Broth Hummus is the snack you’ve been reaching for…

We love hummus, so naturally we thought “let’s put bone broth in there for added flavor and nourishment”. So, here it is! Made from garbanzo beans (AKA chickpeas), hummus is high in protein and fiber, can help to increase satiety, boost digestion, keep blood sugar levels stable, increase protection against disease and so much more. Dr. Mercola even lists garbanzo beans as a one of nine top foods to boost your brain power! With all that said, we really just find them downright tasty and simple to use in dishes like hummus, sprinkled on top of a salad, or sautéed with herbs and spices for a filling side dish.

Creamy Bone Broth Hummus

Serves: 2 | Prep Time: 5 minutes | Cook Time: 10 minutes

  • 1 can garbanzo beans
  • ½ cup of chicken broth
  • ¼ cup tahini
  • ¼ cup fresh lemon juice
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 1 large garlic clove
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp sea salt

Drain and rinse canned beans and combine in saucepan with bone broth. Bring to a simmer and allow to cook until beans have soaked up almost all of the broth.

Transfer beans and any remaining broth into a food processor, along with remaining ingredients. Process until smooth, adding olive oil as needed to thicken.

Serve with olive oil drizzled on top and a sprinkle of additional smoked paprika for garnish. You can also add additional lemon zest, or finely chopped fresh parsley.

    how do the garbanzo beans soak up the broth if they are already saturated from the liquid in the can?

    1. Hey Christina!

      While simmering, the liquid (both the water in the beans and the water in the broth) are evaporating through reduction. While the beans may not soak up all of the broth, the key here as that we’re evaporating off water, leaving the collagen, gelatin and all the good stuff found in bone broth behind, which is then blended in during the next step. Hope this helps! Cheers!
