Fast and Easy Cucumber Hummus

Since we tend to eat an early lunch around here, I almost always need an afternoon pick me up to make it until dinner. I have a bad habit of eating cheese and crackers or something sweet and not so healthy to make it through, but I’ve been trying to find some better options.

I definitely need something with protein that will fill me up and keep me going, which is why I love hummus. It tastes great, is good for you and the chickpeas give it tons of protein.

Traditional hummus has Tahini (sesame paste) in it, but I couldn’t find it in any of my regular stores, so I decided to make it with sesame oil instead since I already had that in my cabinets.

I love playing around with recipes and making substitutions that fit my lifestyle and budget. I think it tastes great and the cucumber/lemon combo really gives it a light and fresh flavor. I love any recipe that uses cucumber because we grow a TON of them during the summer months and I welcome any chance I can get to use them up. Enjoy the recipe friends!

How to Make Cucumber Hummus:

Put all ingredients into blender.

Blend until smooth.

Taste and adjust accordingly.

Serve with chips, crackers or fresh veggies. Enjoy!

  1. This sounds really delicious. My recipe is almost identical except instead of a cucumber I use an avocado. I also just leave out the sesame and use olive oil. I might take my recipe and just add a cucumber. Thanks for the inspiration.
  2. This sounds really light compared to regular hummus. I'll have to give it a try! I also don't eat well at snack time because I'm so focused on giving my girls what they need. I do love to eat crackers with peanut butter and honey or jam. It tastes great and usually holds me over til dinner!
  3. I've made this hummus three times this summer and we love it! My husband's grandmother keeps sending me bags of cucumbers from her garden, so I'm thankful for creative ways to use them up. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
