Make Lemony Hummus Soup!
The recipe came from Angela who got it from Kalyn.
I started with a boatload of garbanzos, soaked overnight and simmered for about an hour this morning while I blogged.
In the soup, we used four cups along with tahini, lemon, red pepper flakes, garlic, paprika, cumin, broth, salt, pepper. Did I say lemon?!
It gets all pureed up in the Vita-mix and garnished with lemon, olive oil, paprika.
On the side, we made some lemon-tahini-dill green beans
Matt made a sauce with dijon mustard (~1 tsp), tahini (~ tbsp), lemon (~1 tbsp) and dill (~1 sprig). I think salt to taste was also involved.
The beans were INCREDIBLE!! We enjoyed them more than the main course!
Guess what we deemed necessary for soup dipping 2/3 of the way through the meal?
Imagine Cookie Monster crumbs flying!!
Yoga was also good today. Lots of long holds of poses that left my muscles almost overworked in spots and not worked in others. I missed music though 🙁 Looks like Wednesdays and Saturdays will become my permanent yoga days when I can go!
I have a Gossip Girl to watch!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Courtney @ The Granola Chronicles says
That soup looks divine – very simple. I like it!
Stacy @ Every Little Thing says
Looks like a clean and healthy dinner!
Estela @ Weekly Bite says
What a great idea for soup! I need to try those green beans!
Angie @ Musings of a Violet Monkey says
I loooove me some hummus, but I just can’t wrap my head around that soup. I saw it on OSG, and just don’t know about it… a bowl full of warm hummus? I’m wondering what the texture is like…?
The green beans sound great!
It was a lot like warm hummus!
I saw the idea of the hummus soup and was soooooo intrigued! I should have known you’d be all over it. 😉
Blog is the New Black says
Interesting recipe! Never seen anything like this!
Sarah @ goingongoals says
Soup looks great!!! Can’t wait to try it!
Emily @ Savory and Savage says
Grats on the wine job! That soup looks wonderful and once again I am contemplating turning in my immersion blender for a Vitamix…
Averie (LoveVeggiesAndYoga) says
The soup looks like warm hummus! Wow..that’s alot of hummus (my tummy doenst handle chickpeas as well as most other bloggers’ tummies do…lol)
I saw Angela’s recipe and now yours..and it makes me want to try it. But a smaller quantity.
“sauce with dijon mustard (~1 tsp), tahini (~ tbsp), lemon (~1 tbsp) and dill (~1 sprig)”– THAT SOUNDS awesome! It looks like tartar sauce or something mayo based in the pic…but isn’t. HOW awesome!
Stacey (The Home-Cooked Vegan) says
That soup definitely sounds interesting! I love bean soup, and the fact that it’s like a big bowl of hummus that you can slurp on is awesome 😉
Have fun watching Gossip Girl, you’ve earned some relaxin’ time!
Kristy @ KristyRuns says
That soup looks AMAZING! I have never done yoga with music. Need.to.try.
Jil @ Big City, Lil Kitchen says
Nommmm. Looks amazing.
Amanda (The Nutritionist Reviews) says
I am so impressed by this soup! It sounds amazing. I am eating hummus and tortilla chips right now!
Emily @ One Sweet Vegan says
Now I want that exact same meal, including the blue chips (which are my fave).
Such simple dishes but it looks so yummy!
Katie @ peacebeme says
Interesting soup, I would never have thought of that.
I’ve been planning to make this since Kalyn posted it! I love the look of the dijon sauce but I think I might actually use it as a drizzle on the soup!
Mary (What's Cookin' with Mary) says
I saw that recipe for hummus soup on Angela’s blog and after seeing you post about it I clicked over to Kalyn’s Kitchen and found so many really great looking recipes I want to try out. I’ve made a shortcut to the recipe and am getting ready to put my dry beans in the crockpot to soak after I click submit!
Holly @ Couch Potato Athlete says
I saw the soup on OSG and it looked amazing. I definitely would have had some chips to dip in!
Those beans look incredible!!!
[email protected] says
Niiiiiiiiiiice. I would be alllll over this soup!
Carolyn @ lovinlosing says
That reminds me. I told myself I was going to make hummus tonight. Now I just have to get my butt off the couch.
AJ @ Flowing to Fifty says
I dont’ think that I’ve ever cooked chick peas from scratch. Just out of curiosity, I might have to try that. The green beans sound amazing. What? No dessert????? 🙂
Enjoy Gossip Girl!!!
Katy (The Singing Runner) says
I love anything with lemons. 🙂 This looks amazing! I’m getting the ingredients the next time I go to the store. 🙂
Finally – an excuse to eat hummus with a spoon! Next project – Nutella soup??
Liz @ Tip Top Shape says
Hummus soup!!!! Sounds so, so good!!
[email protected] says
That meal DOES look amazing! Although it actually looks like you’re eating a bowl of hummus, which is not that appetizing.. haha.
Hummus soup? Gotta give this a try 🙂 Enjoy TV!
hummus is one of my favorite foods. I will def make this soup! Thanks:)
Katelyn @ Chef Katelyn says
I have been dying to make this soup ever since Ang posted it, I eat hummus with a spoon!! Slash I love lemon and lemon juice, and lemon water first thing in the morning. Slash gossip girl = guilty pleasure:)
Sarena (The Non-Dairy Queen) says
The soup looks delicious! I always put extra lemon juice in my hummus, so I am sure this would be right up my alley! Enjoy your show and have a great night!
Tori @ FIToriBLOG.com says
Just love your pics girl!!! Love!!! I want to drink your top pic! 🙂
Amanda (Eating Up) says
What an awesome flavor for a soup!
i agree with kristina! nutella soup should be on the menu 🙂
Nice beans! I’ve been trying to use up a jar of tahini; this would be so easy and delicious!
BTW, do you or any readers know how long a jar of tahini keeps in the refrigerator?
I’ve never actually kept my tahini in the fridge – just in the pantry where I think I’ve had jars for like a year. I guess I just treat it like any other nut/seed butter.
That soup has been on my mind since Angela made it. I’m making it ASAP.
What a delicious soup idea!
Hmm, maybe you could even use the leftovers as regular hummus!
Everything you make looks good. But this soup….you clearly don’t have kids. If u know what I’m saying 🙂
I enjoy yoga w/ or w/o music!
Mmmm, the soup looks awesome and the side dish does sound great! I made a mushroom hummus soup the other week and it was so good with lemon in it 🙂 Have a great evening!
Kristen, Sweetly says
Ohhhh, I made this tonight, too!! I haven’t posted about mine yet, but I basically followed Angela’s recipe exactly. I thought it was incredible. Even better than hummus. 🙂
Your day today sounds so pleasant. I’m going to work on a better mood for tomorrow.
Scoopable hummus-like soup? COUNT ME IN 😀
There are few things I like more than hummus… I have to to this soup!!!
That soup looks so yummy, I really need to not be so afraid of dried beans and try this recipe!
Yoga with no music 🙁 I was forced to teach with no music once and it was seriously lacking….
lynn @ the actor's diet says
homemade hummus is so worth it. except when my husband cut his finger on the immersion blender. that wasn’t worth it.
[email protected] says
I think I would rather have my hummus cold. But those beans look DELICIOUS! I am thinking you baked them at 350-400 for maybe 20min? I will test it out. Have fun with your T.V., I am sure you and your husband deserve some much needed downtime with all your bakery planning.
No baking! We sauteed them 🙂
Lemon makes everything better! Sunny, zingy flavor.
Ellie @ The Mommyist says
MMM, that looks amazing. I love hummus!
Allison @ Happy Tales says
I looove utilizng lemons! I like to put one in my green smoothie. It gives it such a nice “kick”! Have you ever tried it?
Gossip Girl was amazing! These lemony recipes remind me of spring. Hopefully spring will pop up soon!
J3nn (Jenn's Menu and Lifestyle Blog) says
That’s interesting. I don’t know if I could help but feel like I am eating watery hummus, though! 😆 I <3 chickpeas, so it's probably something I'd get used to in the first few bites. 🙂
LauraLee @ Old Fashioned Vegan says
I always eat hummus with a spoon, this looks more socially acceptable though 😉
Caitlin (EatFeats) says
I totally missed the SOUP part of the title, and thought you were eating a cold bowl of hummus for dinner. I wouldn’t blame you if that had ended up being the case.
Namaste Gurl says
That recipe on Angela’s blog caught my eye as well. Anything, in fact, involving hummus calls my name 🙂 Your dinner looks super tasty and those green beans!
I pretty much already eat hummus like soup, so this works for me!
This looks so good! I have been such a hummus addict lately 🙂
Kate (What Kate is Cooking) says
That sounds so good. I’ve never even thought about warm hummus, but that would actually be tasty!
Justeen @ Blissful Baking says
The soup looks tasty! I love hummus 🙂
I love love love hummus, but I’ve never heard of hummus soup! Looks INCREDIBLE, though. I would still eat it with pita chips anyway 😀
I started making my own hummus recently, and I think it’s a great idea — I wouldn’t go back to store-bought ever (except last week when a giant Tribe hummus tub was on super-sale at my grocery store. I couldn’t resist!)
Laura @ Sprint 2 the Table says
i made this tonight, too! i added zucchini and used sesame oil + PB (i am out of tahini).
this is definitely going to be in the rotation regularly – there are so many ways to modify it!
Nancy~The Wife of a Dairyman says
I love the tortilla chips with the soup! Perfect for dipping:)
I wish I liked hummus! It does look good and very healthy.
Both parts of your meal look SO good!
I know this is completely off topic and out of place, but I just had to thank you for sharing the Cooking Light inspired New England Clam Chowder so long ago. I finally got around to making it last night and it was just great! I’ll make it time and again for sure.
Thanks & take care!
Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin says
This caught my eye on Angela’s blog too! I love the flavours of hummus and lemon together!
I love when I have a gossip girl to watch. I like to save them for the weekend, so I can relax and enjoy. If you haven’t already found them, NY Mag has a hilarious recap of the show every week. I love it. Here’s this weeks, for when you’ve watch Monday’s episode. http://nymag.com/daily/entertainment/2011/02/gossip_girl_recap_a_woman_reme.html?imw=Y&f=most-viewed-24h5
I’ve read those! I only think positive things about GG, but they are fun to read 🙂
Angela @ Eat Spin Run Repeat says
This soup sounds great! I just made a ton of hummus on the weekend but after Ange posted the soup I wished I’d made that instead! Hope you enjoyed Gossip Girl!
Soup looks great! Thanks for reminding me of GG, gotta watch it!
Glad you liked the soup. Your photos are great!
chelsey @ clean eating chelsey says
Oh gosh that looks incredible. I absolutely love chickpea soup!!
Ali @ Around the VeggieTable says
Heyyyyy I made a version of this last night too 🙂 Guess we all had the same idea. I put lots of lemon also, and then added spinach and fresh basil. So yummy!
This looks delicious!! I love lemons. I’ve tried to make my own hummus once and it was a massive failure. This looks like a winner though.
