Garbanzo bean hummus with chive blossoms and toasted sesame seeds
Hummus is a delicious and nutty Middle Eastern dip perfect with pita chips, flatbread, vegetable crudites, or part of a mezze platter.
Servings: 1 serving
- 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.
