Homemade Sesame Garlic Hummus from Soaked Garbanzos

Sesame Garlic Hummus by Nourishing Creations

1 cup dried Garbanzo Beans- Soak overnight in warm water. In the morning change the water and add more warm water- soak until white sprout tips begin to emerge.  Then cover with water and cook in Crock pot on High for 3-4 hours until tender. Let cool. Reserve cooking liquid.

Remove Skins from garbanzos by sliding the bean out of the skin. This step yields a smooth hummus and I highly encourage this! It’s worth the outcome!

Then Place cooked garbanzos in a food processor or blender with:
1 grated clove garlic
2 tablespoons tahini (sesame seed and oil paste)
juice from 1 lemon
2 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
1-2 TSP sea salt to taste
Pour 2+ Tbsp Olive Oil and
1-2 TBSP sesame oil while blending/pureeing.
Add reserved cooking liquid if needed to thin.

Blend until a smooth puree.  Taste and adjust seasonings to your liking.
Drizzle with olive oil and sesame Seed garnish.
Serve with pita triangles, veggies, crackers and more!
