Mom's Authentic Hummus Recipe, with a Stoner Twist

April 03, 2024

Welcome to a delicious twist on a classic favorite—Hummus! Whether you’re looking to spice up your snack game or impress guests at your next gathering, this recipe has got you covered. What makes it special? It's infused with THC olive oil, giving a modern touch to this traditional dish. And for those who prefer their hummus without the buzz, simply swap the THC-infused olive oil with regular olive oil or butter.

Let's dive into making this crowd-pleaser that promises creamy texture and rich flavors with every bite.

Yields: 8+ Servings


  • 16 oz (1 can) chickpeas
  • 1/4 cup THC-infused olive oil (for a non-psychoactive version, replace with the same amount of regular olive oil or butter)
  • 1/2 cup Tahini (The secret to a perfect hummus lies here. However, moderation is key!)
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice, freshly squeezed (seedless)
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • Water (adjust to reach your desired consistency)
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Optional garnishes: Chopped parsley, paprika


  • Food processor or blender


  1. Prepare the Chickpeas: Drain them and rinse under cold water. For a silkier texture, peel the skins off each chickpea—a labor of love but worth the effort. Alternatively, scout out pre-blended chickpeas from ethnic or Middle Eastern stores, where they often stock such hidden gems.

  2. Tahini and Lemon Juice: Combine these in your blender and blend for 30 seconds to create a smooth base.

  3. The Blend: Add the chickpeas, garlic, THC olive oil (or your non-psychoactive substitute), cumin, and a quarter cup of water to the mix. Blend until you achieve a creamy consistency, adding more water if necessary.

  4. Season: Adjust the taste with salt and pepper. For those who like it hot, feel free to add some hot sauce or crushed red pepper.

  5. Serve or Store: Transfer the hummus to a serving bowl or refrigerate it for later enjoyment.

Personal Touches:

  • For an added kick, blend in a couple of jalapeño poppers, or swirl in your favorite hot sauce.

  • Freshly chopped parsley can be mixed in gently or sprinkled on top for a burst of color and flavor. Mixing it might change the color, so use sparingly if you aim to keep the traditional look.

  • Elevate your hummus by adding a drizzle of THC olive oil, a sprinkle of sumac, sautéed ground beef, or a few black olives right before serving.

Final Note:

This recipe is not just about crafting the perfect hummus—it’s about creating an experience. Whether you opt for the THC-infused version or keep it classic, this hummus is sure to bring joy to your table. 

Stay toasty, and happy cooking!
