Cooking Time



For the Crackers:

  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 tablespoons cold vegan butter 
  • 1/4 cup cold water
  • 3 tablespoons white sesame seeds
  • 3 tablespoons black sesame seeds

For the Hummus:

  • 2 cups chickpeas, reserve approimately 1/3 cup of liquid and approximately 1/4 cup chickpeas for garnish, drained
  • 1/4 - 1/2 cup tahini both great, but 1/2 cup makes it extra creamy and dreamy
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic peeled and roughly chopped
  • Juice of 1 large lemon
  • 1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • Cracked black pepper to taste

For Garnish:

  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon Za'atar
  • 1 tablespoon sweet paprika
  • Chopped fresh parsley


For the Crackers:

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Pulse together 1 cup whole wheat flour, 1/2 teaspoon sugar, and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a food processor until combined. Add 4 tablespoons of vegan butter and pulse until moist, crumbly, and bits form. Drizzle in 1/4 cup of ice water and add the white and black sesame seeds. Plus until a soft dough forms. Divide in half and on a floured work surface roll each half out and with pasta cutters or a knife make squares or rectangles.
  2. Transfer to a pan and poke holes with a fork to prevent them puffing up. Bake until borrowed at the edges, 10-12 minute. Transfer to a wire wrack to cook completely. Store in an airtight container for up to 1 week or freeze up to 3 months.

For the Hummus:

  1. Put the chickpeas, tahini, oil, garlic, salt, pepper, and lemon juice in a blender or food processor (a blender will give you a much smoother hummus).
  2. Begin to blend and add the chickpea liquid as needed to create a smooth purée. Taste and adjust to your liking.
  3. Transfer to a bowl and drizzle with olive oil. Optional: Garnish with Za’atar, paprika, parsley, and extra chickpeas.
