Hummus Recipe (Vitamix) – Perfect Party Dips

Everyone loves party dips.

But not everyone loves the “bad stuff” that can be in them.

This hummus recipe is a clean one, and includes good fat from olive oil. Plus, it’s super quick to make in my vitamix.

So, here’s the Yummus Hummus recipe. Really, it’s just hummus, but it’s so delicious, I had to add the yummus part.

Here are the ingredients you’ll need to make my yummus hummus recipe:

  • 2 cans of garbanzo beans, drained (reserve the liquid from one can)
  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • paprika to taste
  • basil, parsley, or other herbs to taste
  • extra virgin olive oil

Basically, you just throw together everything except the olive oil into your vitamix and blend until smooth. Add olive oil and the reserved bean liquid until it’s smooth enough for your liking.

It’s really good with some red bell peppers thrown in and blended together with it. Mmm… or olives. There are tons of hummus variations, so try whatever you think would be good! It can’t hurt.

This is a great dip to serve with carrots, celery, bell pepper sticks, jicama, zucchini spears, cucumber slices, or any other veggie.

Try it as a salad dressing, spooned on top of greens with some alfalfa sprouts and slices of tomato…  the possibilities are endless!

I freaking love my Vitamix. This is the one I have, and I use it for EVERYTHING. Cookie dough, waffle/pancake/cake batter, smoothies of course, hummus and other dips, chopping nuts and citrus zest to sprinkle on fish, and on and on… I highly recommend getting one if you don’t have one already.

    That sounds simply delicious. I’ll have to give it a try. I haven’t had fresh made hummus in a while.

    I have been searching for a great hummous recipe.

    These look very tasty.

    My hummous-loving preschooler will fall on her head when I make something fresh for her.

    Thanks!

    Add a salad and this could be my dinner! I love hummus and anything with olives. I also make my own pita chips. You can eat so many more that way…not so much fat. I brush mine with a little olive oil and sprinkle with a little coarse salt. I look forward to the tapenade recipe. YUM!

    Yours looks SO SMOOTH. How did you do that? Mine always has these unappetizing little chickpea skins floating around because they somehow missed the blade. I’ve used a food processor, regular blender, and an immersion blender to try and get the smooth smooth dippiness like yours shows.

    And also: roasted eggplant in the hummus. YUM.

    My recipe is similar but I like to add a tsp of cumin and about twice that much tahini. Then I drizzle the top with olive oil and drop some really good kalamatas on top and serve it with pitas, peeled cukes and sliced tomatoes. We love “Yummus Hummus”! (great name!)
