Just like your favorite bagel, this Everything Bagel Hummus recipe uses black and white sesame seeds, poppy seeds, onion flakes, garlic flakes, and sea salt.
It’s so funny to think back to when I didn’t like hummus. I was always a little skeeved out by it because I’m not a huge fan of beans — particularly the texture — and I just really didn’t like the flavor.
Now, I cannot get enough, especially of flavored hummus. But it’s one of those things that I was always nervous to try to make at home, so I ended up buying it. My very favorite kind is an Everything Bagel Hummus that I can only find at one particular store in town, and it’s about twice the price of regular hummus. So I decided I was going to either go broke or try to figure out how to make it.
Guess what? It’s actually WAY easier than I thought! The key to smooth, delicious hummus is to let it process for a long time in your food processor. The longer it processes, the smoother and thicker it will be.
Everything Bagel Hummus Recipe
It really couldn’t be easier. To start, you just need to make your everything seasoning. Bonus: If you don’t feel like making it, Trader Joe’s sells a fantastic everything bagel seasoning, so you can always just use that instead.
If you’re going to make it, all you need to do is mix together some black sesame seeds, poppy seeds, dried onion flakes, dried garlic flakes, and sea salt. You can make a whole big batch of it and keep it in an airtight container for up to a month.
For the hummus itself, you start with tahini and some lemon juice. Add in some olive oil, and then a can of drained and rinsed chickpeas, and let it process for two or three minutes until it’s nice and thick and smooth. If it’s too thick or still a little chunky, you can add in small amounts of water to smooth it out even more.
Then just stir in a few tablespoons of your everything seasoning, and you’re done!
It really is that easy, and so much less expensive than buying it at the store! What’s your favorite flavor of hummus? Have you ever made hummus at home?
- 2 tablespoons black sesame seeds
- 2 tablespoons white sesame seeds
- 1/4 cup poppy seeds
- 3 tablespoons dried onion flakes
- 3 tablespoons dried garlic flakes
- 1 1/2 tablespoons coarse sea salt
- 1/4 cup tahini
- 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
- 1 15-oz can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
- 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
- 2-3 tablespoons water, if needed
- To make the everything seasoning, mix together black and white sesame seeds, poppy seeds, onion flakes, garlic flakes, and sea salt. Set aside.
- To make the hummus, combine tahini and lemon juice in the bowl of a food processor for 1 minute. Scrape the bowl and process for another minute. Add in olive oil, and process for 1 minute, scraping the bowl halfway through. Add in half of the chickpeas and process for 1-2 minutes. Scrape the bowl, add remaining chickpeas, and process for an additional 2 minutes or until thick and smooth. If hummus is too thick, slowly add in water while food processor is running until it gets to the desired consistency.
- Transfer to a medium bowl and stir in 3-4 tablespoons of the everything seasoning. Sprinkle additional seasoning on top to serve. (Remaining seasoning can be stored in an airtight container for up to one month.)
Home Chef Tip: If you don't want to make the everything seasoning yourself, many stores (including Trader Joe's) sell bottled everything seasoning. Just make your hummus the same way and stir in bottled seasoning as directed in the recipe.
