    This recipe is super easy. Although I had sesame seeds I didnt have tahini and all other recipes asked for Tahini. I added a touch of cajun spice for a little kick, perfect and will definitely be getting made again  -  14 Nov 2011


    Altered ingredient amounts. This is super quick and easy, and great for dipping veggies in. I reduced the oil to 1 tbsp. and used 4 cloves of garlic.  -  29 Sep 2008


    Something else. This is a good recipe for hummus, but is even better when you toast the sesame seeds in a dry frypan until they pop, puree with the olive oil to make a drizzly paste, then add the rest of the stuff. I like to coat the top with olive oil and serve with toasted pita. Yummy! And good for you.  -  29 Sep 2008
