  • 1 can of organic garbanzo beans, 16 oz
  • 6 tbsps tahini
  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil and extra for topping
  • 2 tbsps fresh lemon juice
  • 1 clove of garlic, chopped
  • 1/4 cup water and more if needed
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tbsps chive blossoms
  • 2 tbsps toasted black or white sesame seeds


  • 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.
