Hummus III

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2013
I agree with 2 cans of beans, at least another clove of garlic, thinning this a bit, but I do love this recipe. All changes obviously suit our individual tastes but for heavens sake, if you are making this wonderful dish you can easily make the tahini and save a ton of cash. Tahini is nothing more than 3-4 C toasted sesame seeds and 1/4 to 1/2 C olive oil mixed in a VitaMix or your processor adjusted to your taste! It'll last a month or so in your fridge. It's worth the price of toasted seeds from MySpiceSage.com or from your favorite spice vendor. If you want to toast them yourself, you can buy them raw and have a ball. You can prep your tahini to the consistency of any nut butter or thinner as you wish. Although I don't prep my own beans for this, I still like controlling the ingredients of this dish. I try to avoid canned food so I expect I will also be prepping from dried beans soon and avoid the canned chemicals. I can't say enough about this wonderful, easily prepared, dish. You can start from scratch and make a whole lot more for a whole lot less! I don't eat snacks but I will make an exception for this. It's great with raw vegetables.
