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


  • 850 g (2 ) can chickpeas, with liquid from 1 can
  • 35 g (¼ cup) sesame seeds
  • 2 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, optional
  • ½ lemon, peeled, halved
  • 1 garlic clove, peeled
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • ½ teaspoon salt, optional


  1. Place garbanzo beans, sesame seeds, olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, and cumin into the Vitamix container in the order listed and secure lid.
  2. Select Variable 1.
  3. Turn machine on and slowly increase speed to Variable 10, then to High.
  4. Blend 1 minute, using the tamper to push the ingredients into the blades.
  5. Season to taste with salt.

Chef's Notes

Utilize the Vitamix for pulverizing tough sesame seeds right into your hummus blend, making it an even more accessible treat and saving you from purchasing tahini. Make this recipe your own by adding spices, hot sauce or some of your favorite roasted vegetables.
