Ingredients

  • 30 oz canned chickpeas (garbanzo beans) drained with liquid reserved (I use two 15oz cans)
  • 1/3 cup chickpea liquid or more, as needed
  • 1/2 cup tahini
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 lemons juiced
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp salt

garnish

  • olive oil
  • paprika
  • fresh parsley

Instructions

  • Add all the ingredients to your Vitamix or high-powered blender and secure the lid. Remove the lid cap and insert the tamper.
  • Turn the blender on high for 30 seconds (or more for a creamier texture) and use the tamper to push the hummus into the blades. Add more chickpea liquid (aquafaba), if desired, for a softer hummus.
  • Add the hummus to a serving plate and garnish with olive oil, paprika and fresh parsley.

Notes

  • The hummus will last for up to a week in the fridge, if kept in a sealed container. You can also freeze the hummus in sealed containers for future use, then just thaw as needed. It's actually one of the most common foods I meal prep on a regular basis as it's so easy.
  • Don't forget that you can also make tahini yourself (rather than buying in the store). Just follow my tahini recipe.
  • The Vitamix blender I use is the Vitamix Ascent 3500 - and I love it!
  • 1 cup of dried chickpeas = 3 cups of soaked chickpeas = approx 30 ounces canned chickpeas
