Recipe: Middle-Eastern Hummus Dip


This version of the Middle-Eastern dip contains chickpeas, garlic, and raw sesame seeds. It’s traditionally served with flatbread, but veggies like carrot, cucumber and zucchini sticks are even healthier!


30 ounces (900 g) canned chickpeas, liquid reserved
1/4 cup (35 g) sesame seeds
1 Tablespoon olive oil
1/4 cup (60 ml) lemon juice
1 garlic clove, peeled
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/8 teaspoon salt


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