If you are looking for a flavorful hummus to WOW your guests, this miso hummus takes classic ingredients to the next level! I love cooking with miso paste – it’s super flavorful.
 
While miso is most popular in soup, it makes a fantastic salt substitute in any dish – including this hummus.  Blended with cooked chickpeas, smoky paprika, and bright fresh lemon juice, this hummus is a rich and flavorful dip or spread.

  • Salty

What’s In This Hummus with Miso Recipe?

Be sure to visit the recipe card below for full ingredient amounts and recipe instructions!

  • Light Sweet Miso Paste – I love light and sweet miso paste, I keep a few packs in my pantry for recipes when I want to add a little umami flavor in a pinch. Miso is a paste made from lightly fermented soy beans, and is a classic in soups and Asian dishes.
  • No Salt Added Chickpeas: the staple of all hummuses! You can use canned chickpeas (I’d highly recommend a low sodium or no salt version), or you can make your own chickpeas from scratch in the Instant Pot.
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Tahini: A fantastic and flavorful spread made from ground sesame seeds.
  • Cumin: also adds a really nice flavor to this dip – cumin has a lightly smokey flavor found in a lot of hummus recipes.
  • Red Chili Pepper Flakes: for a little heat! if you don’t like spice, you can absolutely skip them in this recipe.
  • Sea salt and black pepper to taste

    I ended up adding roughly 1/2 a cup of water to this to make it a bit more creamy. The final product isn’t bad and seems to have a smoky taste and overall, it’s not bad. I can’t put my finger on what’s missing, but I feel like this is 1 ingredient away from being being good.

    It’s the first time I’ve used Miso in this manner. A bit more about this experience is in the blog link.
