Instructions

  1. In the bowl of a food processor, place the chickpeas and pulse them until they all breakdown and have a fine texture.
  2. Add the remaining ingredients and process until the hummus is smooth.
  3. Taste and adjust with extra salt, lemon, juice, tahini (for thickness), water (for thinning out).
  4. Add the matcha powder and process until blended and the hummus is green.
  5. Drizzle with some Matcha olive oil on top and serve with your favorite dippers--I used Matcha pita chips, apples and carrots.
  6. For the Matcha Olive Oil: Mix all ingredients in a small bowl.
