Making Homemade Hummus

Last night I made homemade hummus and it was delicious. My only complaint with this recipe is that it makes so much! I got the recipe from my VitaMix cookbook but I modify it a little.

Ingredients:
Chickpeas (aka Garbonzo beans) two 15 ounce cans (one drained, one with liquid)
Olive Oil – 1 and 1/4 Tablespoons
Lemon Juice – 1/4 Cup of lemon juice
Tahini (or sesame seeds) – 2 Tablespoons of Tahini or 1/4 Cup of sesame seeds
Cumin – 1 teaspoon
Garlic – one clove peeled and mashed

Put it all in a blender. I use the frozen dessert setting for about 2 minutes. It gets whipped into a very creamy texture. So delicious!

  1. I love hummus and it’s so easy to make. Thanks for sharing your recipe.

    I just found out that sesame is a food that I react to. (Isn’t that weird?) So, that rules out tahini which I like to use for a salad dressing as well as in hummus. I wonder how hummus would taste without tahini? Or do you think there might be a substitute for it?
