  • 15 oz canned chickpeas
  • 3 tbsp tahini
  • 1/3 cup aquafaba + more as needed
  • 2-3 cloves garlic
  • 1 lemon juiced
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • sea salt to taste (aprox. 1/2 tsp)
  • sesame seeds for garnish optional


  • Add the aquafaba, lemon juice, tahini, garlic, paprika, cumin and chickpeas plus the sea salt to your Vitamix (a powerful blender or food processor). Process until smooth and creamy adding extra aquafaba or lemon juice in tiny amounts if needed. You might want to use the tamper to push the chickpeas into the blades but i did not need to do this.
  • Use a spatula to scoop out all the hummus and transfer to a bowl. Sprinkle with smoked paprika, sesame seeds and some green herbs on top.

  • If using a different type of blender or a food processor and not a Vitamix, you might need to add a little extra liquid. Start by adding one tablespoon at the time of aquafaba until desired consistency is achieved.
