Sesame Wasabi Hummus

I think I have an obsession.

With sesame oil.

What?

Yes. Have you ever smelled it?? It’s probably one of the most luxurious, delicious smells ever. It’s almost an aphrodisiac. Stay with me here – you’ll thank me.

It has a fragrance that is strong, but it’s a good strong. If you’ve never had it or cooked with it, stop by your local grocery store, open a bottle and inhale. If somebody asks you if you’re crazy, tell them I told you to do it and immediately direct them to my website. I’ll set them straight.

I got your back.

Anyway, you will love this hummus (especially if you agree with me on the sesame oil) – it’s such a fantastic twist on the regular stuff.

Sesame Wasabi Hummus

Ingredients

  • 1 cup garbanzo beans (I used dry but you could use a can if you want to make it easier)
  • 4 1/2 cups water, divided
  • 1 garlic clove, finely minced
  • 2 tbsp sesame seed oil
  • 1 1/2 tbsp prepared wasabi paste
  • 1 tbsp salt (more if needed)
  • Sriracha sauce (optional)

Instructions

  • Soak the beans by putting the beans in a large bowl covered with water. Let them soak overnight at room temperature.
  • Drain, rinse and add the beans and 4 cups of water to a dutch oven. Bring to a boil, then reduce to simmer and cover. Cook for 45-60 minutes, or until tender.
  • Drain any water from the beans and add to a food processor.
  • Add the rest of the ingredients, including 1/2 cup water, and pulse until smooth. If it's too thick, add more water by 1-2 tbsp at a time until it's the consistency you want.
  • Top with Sriracha. (Optional)

The sesame flavor combined with wasabi is the bizomb.

I said it.

What.

I could have said biznomb but, look, I  know my limits –  I have two teenagers. There’s only a certain amount I can get away with.

I also have a thing for Sriracha, obviously.

I dipped this with pita chips, but you could use whatever. Like, even a spoon.

OMG – could you imagine this in a tortilla with avocado, Jack cheese and even more sriracha??

  2. Yum. Great idea. This reminds me of the wasabi and soy sauce almonds…they are addictive too, I bet soy sauce would be good in this hummus aswell.
