Hummus is a delicious and nutty Middle Eastern dip perfect with pita chips, flatbread, vegetable crudites, or part of a mezze platter.
Rinse and drain the garbanzo beans.
Place the tahini, lemon juice, olive oil, and garlic in a Vitamix or food processor and pulse for a minute until combined.
Add the garbanzo beans and water to the tahini mixture and pulse for 3-4 minutes until smooth, scraping down the sides as needed to integrate all the large chunks. If the mixture is too thick for your liking, add one tablespoon of water at a time and pulse until you get the desired consistency. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Scrape the hummus into a bowl, top with additional extra virgin olive oil, and garnish with chive blossoms and toasted sesame seeds.
