From The North Grove Kitchen: Tal's Spicy Hummus

You know we love hummus here at The North Grove! As an alternative to Maryann’s famous hummus, Tal, a volunteer at The North Grove, makes a delicious spicy version!

This recipe quickly became a favourite of both volunteers and staff and gives a kick to our favourite vegetables.


  • 1 can (~19 oz) chickpeas, rinsed and drained

  • 1/3 cup water

  • 1/3 cup lemon juice

  • 1/3 cup olive oil

  • 1/3 cup tahini

  • 1 tsp salt

  • 1 tsp cumin

  • 4-6 cloves fresh garlic

  • Sprinkle of paprika

  • A sprinkle of chili flakes


  1. Blend ingredients until smooth in food processor or blender.

  2. Serve with olive oil, paprika and chili flakes on top.
