  • 30 oz canned chickpeas (garbanzo beans), drained with liquid reserved (I use two 15oz cans)
  • 1/3 cup chickpea liquid, or more, as needed
  • 1/2 cup tahini
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 lemons, juiced
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp salt


  • olive oil
  • paprika
  • fresh parsley


  1. Add all the ingredients to your Vitamix or high-powered blender and secure the lid. Remove the lid cap and insert the tamper.

  2. Turn the blender on high for 30 seconds (or more for a creamier texture) and use the tamper to push the hummus into the blades. Add more chickpea liquid (aquafaba), if desired, for a softer hummus.

  3. Add the hummus to a serving plate and garnish with olive oil, paprika and fresh parsley.

Recipe Notes

The hummus will last up to a week in the refrigerator when stored in a sealed container. You can also freeze the hummus for later use in closed containers and thaw as needed. In fact, it is one of the most common foods that I prepare regularly because it is very simple.
Remember, you can also do Tahini yourself (instead of shopping at the store). Just follow my Tahini recipe.
The Vitamix mixer I use is the Vitamix Ascent 3500, and I love it!
