Sesame Wasabi Hummus

I think I have an obsession.

With sesame oil.



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


  • 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)


  • 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.


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??

    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.
