This quick and easy sriracha hummus with fresh garlic is so easy to make at home. With just 5 minutes and few ingredients, you can have the best spicy hummus dip for fresh vegetables, crackers or chips!


  • 15.5 ounce can chickpeas, rinsed and drained (approximately 1.75 cups)
  • 1-2 medium lemons, juice only (see note below)
  • 2 Tablespoons tahini
  • 1 Tablespoon chopped garlic, approximately 3 cloves
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil, plus extra for garnish
  • 1 teaspoon Sriracha, plus extra for garnish


  1. Combine all of the ingredients in a food processor or blender and blend to combine all of the ingredients. Scrape down the sides and continue to blend to the desired consistency. 
  2. Place hummus in a serving bowl and drizzle with extra olive oil and sriracha if desired.


  • A medium lemon generally yields between 3-5 tablespoons of lemon juice. Add the juice of one lemon and then puree the hummus. If the hummus is too thick, add more lemon juice and/or olive oil.
  • This hummus can be blended to your desired consistency. For super smooth hummus, it's best to use a high powered blender or food processor. For chunkier hummus, pulse the ingredients slowly until the desired consistency is achieved. 
  • This hummus will keep in an airtight container in the fridge for about 3-4 days. It can also be stored in the freezer for up to 3 months. Thaw frozen hummus in the refrigerator for about 24 hours. Stir or blend thawed hummus to make it creamy again, if needed.
