This recipe will make one medium tray of hummus*


  1. Mince your Garlic Cloves or Scapes in the food processor.
  2. Add all other ingredients to the food processor
  3. Process until smooth creamy. (you can add a little bit of water as you process to hit the perfect consistency)
  4. Spread evenly on your lined tray, you can use dividers to create single servings
  5. Pre-Freeze
  6. Freeze Dry
  7. Powder and Store Appropriately.  (See Tips and Tricks for storage help)


Cycle Time:

(I did not pre-freeze) In a mixed load (2 trays hummus, 2 trays chips, 1 tray of odds and ends) my time in a Large with a Premier Pump was 31 hours


Add cold water slowly and stir until you reach desired consistency


* Large Tray = 8 Cups/tray   Medium = 6 Cups/Tray   Small = 4 Cups/Tray

Cycle times & rehydration for reference only. Your results may vary.

  • Any idea about how much the 3 scapes make when chopped? I have a bunch powdered from last year that I’d love to use.
