Scale

Ingredients

  • 15 oz. chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • 1/4 cup toasted sesame oil
  • 1 lemon, juiced (about 3 tablespoons)
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground pepper
  • 24 tablespoons water, as needed
  • 1/2 teaspoon black sesame seeds

Instructions

  1. Place the chickpeas, tahini, sesame oil, lemon juice, garlic cloves, salt, and pepper in a food processor or blender.
  2. Blend on high until smooth, taking breaks to scrape down the sides with a rubber spatula, about 3 – 5 minutes.
  3. If you want to thin out the hummus a bit, add 2 – 4 tablespoons of water while it’s blending.
  4. Transfer the hummus to a bowl, top with a drizzle of sesame oil and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
