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.


  • 2 cans (900 g) chickpeas, liquid reserved from 1 can
  • 35 g (¼ cup) sesame seeds
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 60 ml (¼ cup) fresh lemon juice
  • 1 garlic clove, peeled
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • ½ teaspoon salt, optional


  1. Place chick peas,reserved liquid, sesame seeds, olive oil, fresh lemon juice, garlic, and cumin into the Vitamix container in the order listed and secure lid.
  2. Start the blender on its lowest speed, then quickly increase to its highest speed. Blend 1 minute, using the tamper to press ingredients toward the blades. Season to taste with salt if desired.
