Make a batch of plain hummus, then split in half. Keep one half plain, and return the other half to the food processor and add the flavour of your choice.
Use a good quality olive oil - you will taste the difference.
Tahini is available from supermarkets and health food stores - it is a paste made from sesame seeds and has a very strong flavour. If you notice your hummus has a slightly bitter flavour then reduce the amount of tahini you use next time you make it.
