Hummus is rated out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Janet in Boulder from Tasty and easy! This recipe is basic and yet very tasty. It was easy to put together and the Vitamix yields a very smooth hummus. I used cumin seeds that I had ground using a mortar and pestle and was a little concerned that there might be bits of the seeds in the hummus. But the Vitamix mixed everything together well--no sign of the sesame or cumin hulls. Definitely be ready to use the tamper to help with the mixing. I used roasted sesame seeds (it's what I had on hand) and really enjoyed the taste of the hummus. Looking forward to making this in the future and adding other flavors (green chile, avocados, roasted red peppers, etc.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by FlyPharr from Easy and Delicious Easy and tasty recipe! I opted out of the garlic. I did add a small package of pine nuts which I toasted in the oven for a few mins prior. And as Janet above did, I also used the toasted sesame seeds. These additions made for a delicious treat. Love my new Vitamix!

Rated 5 out of 5 by DeniseD from So easy and delicious! I've made this so many times that I don't even need to look up the recipe! The only modification that I make is omitting the oil and garlic and adding 12oz of marinated roasted red peppers with oil and garlic. It becomes a beautiful roasted red pepper hummus. My family and my friends love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dolly from Best Hummus ever I made this hummus with only one can of chick peas (not drained) along with one pealed and cooked sweet potato (microwaved). Followed the rest of the recipe exactly. Wonderful flavor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mastertron from This is the best! I could just eat a big bowl of this with a spoon. It is so easy to make, I am never buying just normal dip ever again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Shani from Iffy at first, but turned out great! I was nervous at first because my machine was making a chugging noise and not blending well. Per the previous comments, I used the tamper a lot and it came out very smooth. It definitely needs salt, so make sure to add it. It took me less than 2 minutes to whip up!

Rated 4 out of 5 by MeganT0123 from Tasty hummus Like others, I lightly toasted my seasons seeds. Turned out fantastic. Only complaint is this makes a tonnnn of hummus. About 4 cups and I didn't even try to get it all out of the container. I topped it with some Greek seasoning to serve. So good.

I've been making hummus in my Vitamix with sesame seeds instead of tahini for quite some time. I lightly toast my seeds before processing. Is that okay?
Yes by toasting the seeds first you will gain more flavor.

do you also add water? I did put them as suggested. It was so tight and the blender had hard time.
Recipes I have found, suggest adding some of the liquid from the can of chickpeas or from the water used to cook them.
