Easy Sesame Hummus - Making Hummus Like a Pro

  • Author: Caitlin
  • Total Time: 40 mins
  • Yield: 6 1x


  • 3 cups cooked chickpeas (around 2 cans, drained)
  • 2 cloves unpeeled garlic
  • Juice of 1/4-1/2 lemon (to taste)
  • 22.5 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil (optional, can substitute with more olive oil)
  • 1/2 cup of water
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. For roasted garlic, simply place unpeeled in the oven for about 20 minutes on about 350 degrees fahrenheit. Meanwhile, you can peel the chickpeas or assemble your other ingredients. I use a little sesame oil to help give it that authentic flavor without buying the tahini (sesame paste). You can use 100% olive oil if you prefer. (Cheaper that way.) Chick peas and oil
  2. Place all ingredients in blender and blend until smooth, adding as much water as necessary to reach the consistency you desire.
  3. Top with a little oil to keep it moist, and any other toppings you’d like. (Pine nuts, sesame seeds, sun-dried tomatoes, etc.) Serve with pita or carrots or bell pepper slices and enjoy!
