Enjoy this quick, Mediterranean-inspired Anti-Inflammatory Hummus Dip with Veggies. The Mediterranean diet is renowned for its focus on fresh vegetables, olive oil, and legumes, all of which are beneficial for reducing inflammation.

Mediterranean-inspired Hummus Dip with Veggies


  • 1 can (15 ounces) chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Water (as needed for desired consistency)
  • Vegetables of choice


  1. In a food processor, combine the chickpeas, minced garlic, tahini, fresh lemon juice, extra virgin olive oil, ground cumin, salt, and pepper.
  2. Process until smooth, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed. If the hummus is too thick, you can add water, 1 tablespoon at a time, until you reach your desired consistency.
  3. Taste and adjust the seasoning if needed, adding more lemon juice, salt, or cumin according to your preference.
  4. Transfer the hummus to a serving bowl and set aside.
  5. Arrange the carrot sticks, cucumber slices, bell pepper strips, cherry tomatoes, celery sticks, radish slices, and Kalamata olives on a platter around the bowl of hummus.
  6. Drizzle the vegetables with a little extra virgin olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  7. Garnish the hummus with a drizzle of olive oil and a sprinkle of fresh parsley or basil.
  8. Serve the Mediterranean-inspired Anti-Inflammatory Hummus Dip with Veggies alongside fresh lemon wedges for squeezing over the veggies.
