Hummus Recipe

This is my basic recipe.  If you want gourmet variations add extra roasted garlic, sun-dried tomatoes, or roasted red peppers.  It is a quick and easy appetizer to whip up in minutes, and freezes well too.  Our favorite dippers are carrot sticks, toasted pita bread, and Triscuit crackers!

  • 2 15-ounce cans chick peas (garbanzos), one drained, one with liquid
  • ¼ cup raw sesame seeds
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ¼ cup lemon juice
  • 2 garlic cloves, roasted
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • salt, to taste
1. Place all ingredients, except salt, into the Vitamix container in the order listed and secure lid.
2. Select Variable 1.
3. Turn machine on and quickly 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.

Yields almost 4 cups
