"I have always loved making hummus for my family (which usually included tahini). When I discovered my son was allergic to soy (which is in most all store-bought tahini) I decided to make my own and it turned out even better than any other store-bought brand! Made as described this recipe is Paleo-diet friendly, SOY FREE, DAIRY FREE, GLUTEN FREE AND GRAIN FREE. Enjoy!"

SO EASY !! .. like the others I also toasted my own sesame seeds in a non stick skillet ..

I used this to make the "Real Hummus" recipe on AR. This was easy to make. I needed to add extra olive oil for it to blend properly. Also, I used black and white sesame seeds which gave it a ...
