Real Hummus

Reviewed: May 20, 2013
Great recipe! I only had 2 oz of Sesame seeds in the house and no time to hunt down tahini here on the Irish Rivera. I know from experience our grocery stores don't even know what it is. I made a mini batch of Tahini using which was very easy. So for this hummus recipe I only had about 1 Tablespoon of tahini. Because I used fresh tahini it had a very dominant Sesame flavor and didn't need more. I did double the garlic, and if I had time would have used some lemon zest for even more lemon flavor. To avoid gas I rinsed the beans and added very little water, it didn't need it. I didn't do cumin because some people just don't like it but I will add it next time when I make it for myself. I cut way back on the salt and it was fine for my taste. Our guest ate nearly all of it including picky kids. Thank you for sharing!
