Stars and Stripes Hummus Recipe

This festive hummus dish is perfect for all of your upcoming 4th of July and Labor Day gatherings.

Social hour starts with a fun and festive Stars and Stripes Hummus recipe. Follow up with a side of tri-color macaroni salad, and rinse it all down with a patriotic version of your favorite adult beverage!

This twist on traditional hummus uses squeezable Mighty Sesame Co. tahini as a base. The brand’s easy-to-use formula is gluten-free, non-GMO, kosher, halal, and keto-friendly. Enjoy!

Servings: Makes 4 cups of hummus

Prep time: 20 minutes; Cook time: 10 minutes; Total time: 30 minutes


  • 2 14-oz cans garbanzo beans
  • 6 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 3/4 cup Mighty Sesame tahini
  • 4 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cumin

Red hummus:

  • 1 medium beet, cooked

Blue hummus:

  • 1 cup shredded purple cabbage
  • 1/4 sliced onion
  • Olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda


  1. Rinse and drain garbanzo beans and set aside.
  2. Mix together lemon juice and water and set aside. Whisk together tahini and oil and set aside.
  3. In a food processor, process garbanzo beans with garlic, salt, and cumin until chunky. Then add lemon mixture and process until somewhat smooth. As the machine runs, add olive oil and tahini mixture until smooth, scraping bowl as needed.
  4. Remove 2/3 of the hummus and add 1 medium cooked beet. Process until bright red and smooth.
  5. Clean food processor and add half of reserved hummus back into the processor.
  6. Sauté cabbage with onions on medium heat with 1-2 tablespoons of olive oil until softened. Add mixture to hummus in the food processor with 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda. Process until bright blue. Note that it may look a bit purplish, but when paired with the other colors you will achieve a patriotic look either way.
  7. Place all three hummus colors in resealable plastic bags and clip end of each bag to allow hummus to flow out freely.
  8. Use your imagination to create an American flag or any festive party dish with the hummus. Serve with extra virgin olive oil and plenty of crackers.
