Delicious hummus recipe that does not use tahini. Mashing the chickpeas is optional, but I think it makes it blend easier.

These are ingredients I usually have on hand. It was great! I loved the spice in it and the texture was perfect. My guests enjoyed it as well and liked the option of not using tahini. I don't write too many reviews but I wanted to make sure to give it 5 stars! All I did differently was use some of the reserved juice from the can instead of water, 2T gave it a good consistency. It's definitely worth trying! Read More

Excellent recipe! So quick and easy. I used 3 large cloves of garlic and it really gave it quite the kick! Also used a little more cumin and added a handful of toasted sesame seeds. Very yummy! Read More

Incredible and super quick with an immersion blender. I had freshly cooked garbanzos and no tahini and tried this. It's already gone! YUMMMM I was a little worried that the sesame oil might give it a "weird" taste but not so. Give it a try! Read More

Very nice - tasty & easy! Took to a baby shower with raw broccoli radishes baby carrots & small spears of cuc and tri-color sweet peppers. Lots of compliments?? Had chickpeas in freezer (make a big pot & save til needed) so didn't rinse or mash- worked well. Also did NOT add the water but a tad bit more lemon juice. Read More
