  • 1 cup water
  • 2 (540) mL cans chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • 1 cup tahini
  • 1 cup lemon juice or the juice from 2 lemons
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1 tbsp olive oil


  • Add water to Instant Pot, then chickpeas. Place lid on Instant Pot and make sure valve is set to seal.
  • Press the pressure cook button and set to low, then cook for 5 minutes. The Instant Pot will take about 5-10 minutes to come to pressure, then notify you it's done by beeping.
  • Press the Cancel button then do a quick release of the pressure on the Instant Pot by flicking the switch at the top with a spoon. Open the lid when pressure gauge has dropped and the lid opens easily.
  • Drain water from Instant Pot, then add chickpeas back to the pot. Add in tahini, lemon juice, garlic, salt and cumin. Use an immersion blender to blend the entire mixture together until smooth.
  • Serve in a large bowl, drizzling with olive oil and any additional toppings. Serve with pita bread and veggies, and enjoy!
