Ingredients
  • 1 15 oz. can garbanzos
  • 2-4 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp. toasted sesame oil
  • 1 or 2 cloves garlic, peeled
  • Salt and pepper

  • Methods/steps
    1. Pour garbanzos into a fine strainer set over a bowl to collect liquid; reserve liquid. In a blender, combine garbanzos, 2 tbsp. olive oil, lemon juice, sesame oil, garlic, and 1/3 cup of the reserved garbanzo liquid. Whirl until smooth and creamy. Add salt and pepper to taste, and, if mixture is too stiff, 1 to 2 more tbsp. of liquid; hummus should be soft but still stiff enough to hold its shape. Scrape into a shallow serving bowl. Shortly before serving, drizzle with 2 more tbsp. olive oil.
