You will never buy store-bought hummus again. So easy. So smooth. No aftertaste. Absolutely delicious!|the House of Hendrix #vitamix #cleaneatingI have taste tested many a brand of hummus and have become quite picking. I don’t like an aftertaste, nor preservatives. I like it smooth and creamy, almost begging to be dipped in. After I saved for my Vitamix blender, I began experimenting to find the perfect hummus recipe. Here is my all-time favorite.

All-Time Favorite Hummus

  • 2 cans of garbanzo beans, one drained, one with liquid
  • 1/4 cup of sunflower seeds
  • 1 Tbs Olive Oil
  • 1/4 cup Lemon Juice
  • 1 Garlic clove
  • Red Pepper (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon of cumin
  • sea saltSimple and Fresh healthy Hummus - You will never buy store bought again.

Optional Roasting – You can roast the sunflower seeds, garlic and red pepper in the oven for 5-7 minutes to draw out the flavor a bit. I have done it both ways, and often skip this step to save time.

Place all ingredients (except salt) into the Vitamix blender. A regular blender will also work but not have the smoothness of the high powered Vitamix.Great Red pepper hummus recipe for the Vitamix blender.

Turn on Variable 1 and quickly turn knob to 10. Then switch to high for 1 minute, tampering it as necessary.

Add salt.

Enjoy with crackers, veggies, or even pretzels.You'll never buy store-bought hummus again! This is the smoothest recipe with absolutely no sharp aftertaste. Great source of fiber and protein. #vitamix #hummus For more recipes, check out my recipe boards on Pinterest.

    • Yes, because that is not something I buy. I usually have sesame seeds in my pantry. The original vitamix recipe that I began experimenting from used seeds. I think the power of a vitamix blender probably turns the seeds into a paste though.

Tell me what you think...
