  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Combine tahini, olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, cayenne pepper, cumin, salt, sesame oil, and hot sauce in a food processor or blender; blend until very smooth, about 3 minutes. Add garbanzo beans and blend for 2 minutes. Add water and blend for 3 minutes more. Chill in refrigerator.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Notes:
  • For fluffier hummus add 3 to 4 tablespoons of water instead of 2. If you really like it hot, add an extra teaspoon of cayenne pepper or a halved, seeded hot red pepper in the beginning.
