Hummus III

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2012
Have always enjoyed hummus but started making my own only a few years ago. I decided to make this recipe but found the hummus too thick for my taste. So since I had already discarded the liquid leftover in the chick pea can, I gradually added a 50-50 mixture of water & sesame seed oil to reach my desired consistency. Surprisingly, that tiny bit of sesame seed oil gave the hummus such a nice flavor that it created quite a stir at the buffet table that evening. Almost everyone who tasted it wanted to know what I had done differently. I don't know if all my guests liked this variation but I observed a handful of them coming back for seconds and even thirds. I had doubled the recipe and added 4 tbsp. water & 4 tbsp. sesame seed oil. So for a single batch, I would make that 2 tbsp. each of water & sesame seed oil. However, if you really like the thicker consistency you end up with, why not add the sesame seed oil only?
