Happy Hummus Day!

Vitamix posted this recipe on Facebook today - in honor of National Hummus Day. Did you know it was National Hummus Day? Me either, but I love some good hummus, so I thought I'd grab the recipe.  I know there are plenty of hummus recipes available online, but so many of them call for tahini, and I haven't been able to find it.  Should it be in my local grocery store?   This recipe doesn't call for it, so I'm gonna give it a try.


  • 2 (15-ounce) cans chick peas (garbanzos), one drained, one with liquid
  • 1/4 cup (35 g) raw sesame seeds
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) lemon juice
  • 1 garlic clove, peeled
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • Salt

  1. Place all ingredients, except salt, into the Vitamix container in the order listed and secure lid.
  2. Select Variable 1.
  3. Turn machine on and slowly increase speed to Variable 10, then to High.
  4. Blend for 1 minute, using the tamper to press the ingredients into the blades.
  5. Season to taste with salt.

  Of course, I'll have to use my Ninja, since I don't have a Vitamix, so no Variables, but....

Do you have a favorite go-to hummus recipe?  Please share!  Know where to buy tahini?  Share that too.   Maybe I should have though to buy Tahini on Amazon! because there's plenty available. Now to figure out which one...
