Easy Hummus

I love hummus and this is a very easy recipe to make.


15 oz. can organic chick peas (garbanzo beans), drained
1/2 cup raw sesame seeds
1 1/2 TBS. Olive Oil
Juice of 2 Lemons ( I squeeze them over a small mesh strainer)
1 clove of garlic
Salt and Pepper to taste


I have been blessed by a Vita Mix Machine and that is what I use for this sort of stuff but you can try your blender or even a food processor for this.
Place all the ingredients in the above order in your machine and turn on high for 1 minute.
If you don't have a Vita Mix with the tamper then you will probably have to stop and scrap the hummus down and blend periodically to get it all incorporated. Dump in a bowl. ( Don't you love how technical I am?)
Then just grab some chips or pita bread and enjoy!

For a tasty twist you can add roasted red peppers to this mix and it adds really great flavor.
Even a little dash of hot sauce can kick it up!
Do your own experimenting and let me know what you come up with.


  1. I'm having a problem getting your main blog to load today, so I thought I'd leave a comment on this one. I LOVE hummus!! Only problem is, I can eat the whole recipe by myself...a whole 16 oz. can of chick peas all to myself.

    I don't use raw sesame seeds, though. I buy tahini (sesame butter). But we got some toasted sesame seeds in a Christmas gift package, so I'm thinking that using them for a recipe of hummus sounds really good for later today.


  2. I think I would really like this with the roasted red peppers. Sounds good, my friend!

  3. Wow! I never know what humus like. Do you mind if you include the picture of it sweetheart?


I really appreciate the time you take to leave a comment. Thank you!
