Everything bagel hummus is rich, creamy and delicious! Slather it over crostini. Enjoy it as a dip for crisp veggies and bagel chips. Enjoy it as a fresh condiment for NY bagels, sandwiches, wraps and gyros.


Units Scale


  • 2 (15-ounce) cans chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup cream cheese, softened (if vegan: use Kite Hill dairy-free)
  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice (or bottled lemon juice for more acidity)
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons everything bagel seasoning (if it’s salt-free, add 1 teaspoon sea salt)
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • Water, if needed for thinning


  • Extra-virgin olive oil
  • Everything Bagel Seasoning
  • Cayenne pepper
  • Bagel chips, pita chips, crostini or crackers
  • Fresh-cut veggies


RECIPE PREP: Remove skins from the chickpeas (see “Notes” for removal methods).

  • Add all ingredients, except the water, to the bowl of a food processor or high-powered blender. Blend until smooth. If too thick, add in water (or more lemon juice) 2 tablespoons at a time until you’ve reached the desired consistency. 
  • Transfer hummus to a serving bowl. If time allows, cover the surface with plastic wrap and let it rest for 30 minutes so the flavors can combine and further develop. 
  • Just before serving, take the back of a spoon and make a rough shallow swirl on the surface of the hummus. Drizzle with olive oil. Add a pinch or two of cayenne pepper. Sprinkle with everything bagel seasoning. Serve with bagel chips and sliced veggies.

KITCHEN SMARTS: If not immediately serving, refrigerate until needed – up to 3 days max. Remove from fridge at least 30 minutes before serving. 


TWO WAYS TO PEEL CHICKPEAS: 1. Rub drained beans between paper towels to loosen skins, then remove with your fingertips. 2. Drain and dry beans between paper towels. In a bowl, toss the 3 cups chickpeas with 3 teaspoons baking soda. Add coated beans to a large skillet over medium-high heat. Stir constantly for 3 minutes. Rinse beans in water 3 to 4 times while rubbing vigorously with your fingertips to remove skins.
