Ingredients

  • 1 can (15 oz.) garbanzos
  • 2 to 4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
  • 1 or 2 cloves garlic, peeled
  • Salt and pepper

Preparation

  1. 1. Pour garbanzos into a fine strainer set over a bowl to collect liquid; reserve liquid.
  2. 2. In a blender, combine garbanzos, 2 tablespoons 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 tablespoons liquid; hummus should be soft but still stiff enough to hold its shape. Scrape into a shallow serving bowl.
  3. 3. Shortly before serving, drizzle with 2 more tablespoons olive oil if desired.
