Hummus [Vitamix ONE]

Our version of this Middle-Eastern dip contains chickpeas, garlic, and raw sesame seeds. It's traditionally served with flatbread, but crackers and tortilla chips are great, too.



  • 1 can (454 g) chickpeas, drained, liquid reserved
  • ¼ cup (60 ml) chickpea liquid
  • 2 Tablespoon extra virgin olive oil, optional
  • ¼ lemon, peeled
  • 1 garlic clove, peeled
  • ¼ cup (60 ml) Tahini , or sesame seeds
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon salt, optional


  1. With a peeler or paring knife, remove the peel and white pith from the lemon, leaving just the flesh.
  2. Place all ingredients into the Vitamix container in the order listed and secure the lid.
  3. Start the blender on its lowest speed, then quickly increase to its highest speed. Blend for 1 minute, using the tamper to press ingredients toward the blades.

Chef's Notes

This recipe makes quick work of the chickpeas to create a smooth creamy hummus. Make this hummus your own by adding roasted red peppers, hot sauce, or spices you enjoy.
