If you’ve got some mason jars around your house, prep any veggies you want and pair them with this hummus for a super simple and tasty on-the-go snack! Snack Prep: Veggie Sticks with Easy Pesto Hummus recipe and veggie ideas!



  • 115 ounce can of chickpeas, rinsed and drained (peeled or unpeeled)
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons prepared pesto
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice (half one lemon)
  • 3 tablespoons tahini sauce
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • carrots and celery, any veggies of your choice
  • optional: parmesan cheese


  1. Add all ingredients except veggies to a food processor until smooth. Add 2 tablespoons of water for thinner and smoother hummus.
  2. Wash, cut and prepare your veggies. Be sure to note the height of your mason jar, and cut your veggies 1/2 inch to 1 inch shorter than the mason jar. That way they will fit with the lid on.
  3. Fill jars with approximately 3 tablespoons hummus, then veggies. Hummus makes up to 6 mason jar servings. Store for up to 5 days.


For 4 mason jars, I used 6 medium sized carrots and 1 bunch of celery. Feel free to use your favorites.
