Classic Hummus

Nothing beats homemade hummus...NOTHING. Enjoy this protein-packed dip with whole-grain pita chips or a rainbow of freshly cut veggies like carrots, celery, and radishes!


  • 3 Cups Garbanzo Beans – dried and rinsed
  • 2 Garlic, clove
  • 1/4 Cup Lemon Juice
  • 2 Teaspoons Lemon Juice
  • 1/4 Cup Olive Oil
  • 1/4 Cup Water
  • 2 Tablespoons Water
  • 1/2 Cup Tahini
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Sea Salt
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Cumin, ground


Add all ingredients to the pitcher and cover with the pitcher lid — vented lid cap removed.
PULSE three times for 2 seconds each pulse until liquid is incorporated into the mixture, then switch to MEDIUM and blend for 45 seconds or until the hummus reaches your desired consistency.
Tip: for smoother hummus blend longer, for chunkier hummus blend for 30 seconds.
If you find ingredients are not blending evenly, insert the tamper through the hole in the pitcher lid and stir to redistribute the contents.
Blend until you get a smooth, even purée.
You can store the hummus in the fridge for 4 to 7 days.
