Vitamix Hummus Recipe

My search for the ideal creamy and tasty hummus led me to create this Vitamix version. In metro Detroit, there are a lot of Middle Eastern eateries, and I’ve always wanted to master the recipe at home. The Vitamix blender is the key to this recipe’s ultimate smoothness since it emulsifies the ingredients effectively and prevents it from being gritty. When I used a food processor in the past, the results were never smooth. If preferred, sprinkle with minced parsley or a dash of paprika after drizzling with extra virgin olive oil. For a savory twist, top when serving with toasted pine nuts. Delicious with chopped vegetables, pretzels, or freshly baked pita.

Vitamix Hummus Recipe

Components:

Two (15-ounce) cans of chickpeas

Six tsp extra virgin olive oil, split

1/2 tsp finely chopped garlic

One lemon

⅓ cup sesame seed paste, or tahini

Half a teaspoon of salt

Add extra ground cumin to taste, or just one dash

Guidelines

Fill a Vitamix or similar blender with 1 can of chickpeas and their liquid. Empty the second can of chickpeas, setting aside the juice. Add the chickpeas to the blender and set aside the liquid.

In a 6- to 8-inch saucepan, heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium-high heat. Add the garlic and cook for about a minute, or until it just starts to turn golden. Take off the heat right away, then transfer the pan oil-sautéed garlic to the blender.

Squeeze the lemon’s juice straight into the blender using a citrus press to prevent seeds from entering the mixture. Pour in the remaining oil Cumin, tahini, and salt.

Mix well on high speed for one to two minutes. After adding the appropriate amount of the reserved chickpea juice, gradually blend for another two to three minutes, or until the required consistency is attained. To serve, transfer the hummus evenly in a circular motion into a flat serving bowl.
