Combine to Kitchen – Soy Hummus

Hummus made from soybeans!

In this unique version of hummus, traditional sesame seed tahini is replaced with the equally “nutty” taste of soy butter. Bonus: it’s now school-safe for classrooms where nuts and seeds are restricted!


  • 19 oz. can no-salt-added chickpeas, drained
  • 1/4 cup silken tofu
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp soy butter (such as Wowbutter)
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper


  1. In a food processor, add chickpeas, tofu, lemon juice, soy butter, oil, cumin, and garlic.
  2. Process until smooth.
  3. Add pepper, adjusting to taste.
  4. Serve with raw vegetables or whole grain crackers for dipping.

You can make wheat thin crackers at home too!
