This is my go-to recipe for hummus! Tho I usually add more garlic, more lemon and include the cumin and red pepper. But many people don't realize that tahini is just toasted sesame seeds blended with olive oil and super easy to make yourself! I get my sesame seeds in the bulk food section really cheap, and make the tahini myself. Admittedly, I can be a lazy cook, so most the time I just toast my sesame seeds and throw them in the hummus as is and grind it up all together. If you want to take the time, you can roast the sesame seeds then grind them up with a little olive oil using a mortar and pestle or your blender and then add it to your hummus. Also, the more you toast your sesame seeds, the more bitter they become. So I only lightly toast them. And then I like to make what we call a Nagel Bagel! Toast a bagel, swipe a good amount of hummus on it, and top it off with slices of tomato, cucumber, and onion! My oh my, am I in seventh heaven with one of these!!!
