Classic Hummus


  • 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
  • Optional for garnish: Olive oil, paprika, fresh parsley/dill


  • Add all the ingredients to your Vitamix or high-powered blender and blend away. 30 seconds at a time, blend on high, stopping in between to scrape whippy hummus substance down to the blades.
  • As you reach your desired consistency, add your aquafaba (saved chickpea liquid) as you see fit. Caution: I have unfortunately resulted in hummus soup from adding too much liquid, so carefully add small amounts at a time so you don’t make my mistake!)
  • Add the hummus to a serving plate and garnish with olive oil, paprika and fresh parsley. ~* artsy *~
