- Completely healthy and wholesome! Healthy dips are not always easy to find at the supermarket. They often include tons of oil or other hidden, unwanted ingredients. Enter healthy dill pickle hummus, for the win!
- Super easy to make! Making dips from scratch is the best way to know exactly what’s in it, but also, when it’s THIS easy, there’s no reason not to. Just throw everything into your food processor, and it’ll be ready in no time.

Serve your dill pickle hummus with your favourite veggies, crackers, toasted pitas or naan bread. Or use it as a spread in your favourite burgers and sandwiches. It’s also fantastic on grilled zucchini or portobello mushrooms.
How long does it keep?
Your dill pickle hummus will keep refrigerated, in a sealed container for up to 4 days.
You may also freeze it in an airtight container for up to 4 months. Separate into small containers for individual portions, or a large container for your next event.
Either way, be sure to use freezer safe containers and make sure to leave a little space for expansion.
I highly recommend using pickle juice over water for the absolute best dill pickle flavour in your hummus. If you have a jar of pickles in the fridge, just scoop out a few tablespoons.
- TIP: When you finish your next jar of pickles, drain the contents (there’s often bits of garlic and pickles left behind) and keep the pickle juice in a jar in your fridge, for next time!
- White beans work best for a creamier texture, but you may sub for chickpeas, if preferred.
- Make ahead and refrigerate for 1 hour if you prefer your dips chilled.
