  • olive oil
  • paprika
  • fresh parsley

Cooking instructions: 

  1. Add all the ingredients to your Vitamix or high-powered blender and secure the lid. Remove the lid cap and insert the tamper.
  2. Turn the blender on high for 30 seconds (or more for creamier) and use the tamper to push the hummus into the blades. Add more chickpea liquid, if desired, for a softer hummus.
  3. Add the hummus to a serving plate and garnish with olive oil, paprika and fresh parsley.

We eat hommos using bread as a spoon.
