Sunflower Seed Scallion Hummus

A spin on your classic hummus recipe. Subbing sunflower seed butter for tahini, limes for lemons and scallions for garlic. If you don’t have a sensitivity to olgios (garbanzo beans) this could be FODMAP friendly dip for you! Or do as I do and take Alpha-galactosidase enzyme. 


Yields: About 1 ½ cups of hummus 

1 can garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed

¼ cup sunflower seed butter

3 scallions/green onions, grilled

2 tbsp soy sauce, braggs or coconut aminos

Zest and juice of one lime

2-4 tbsp water, as needed

Fresh ground pepper


  1. Add scallions and garbanzo beans to a high powered food processor. Pulse until just combined. Add lime, soy sauce and 1 tbsp water.

  2. Pulse until smooth, adding more water as needed until desired consistency is reached.

  3. I like my hummus thick - and it will continue to thicken in the fridge.

    Serve with your favorite chips or crudités!
