Chickpea Tahini Dressing

Prep Time 5 mins
Cook Time 5 mins
Total Time 10 mins
Course Dressing
Servings 4 salads


  • 2 cups garbanzo beans
  • 2 Tbsp tahini
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp olive oil optional
  • 1 1/4 cup water


  • Add all ingredients to a food processor, or large immersion blender cup if using an immersion blender.
  • Blend ingredients very well until you get a smooth, pourable consistency.
  • Add more water if necessary to make sure you can pour the dressing over a salad or other veggies.
  • This is the same recipe I use for hummus, except I greatly reduce the water and use a bit more aquafaba.


  • If you're using an immersion blender, you will need to blend it very well to make sure the garlic breaks down. I like the spicy flavor the garlic adds using the immersion blender, but if you do not like this, use garlic powder
  • If the hummus thickens up over night, add a little water and stir to make it a dressing consistency again
