Can't live without Hummus

Here's the hummus recipe that was a big hit! And cheaper than the store bought hummus I always buy (though I love Trader Joes hummus, especially the edemame flavor). My son will not eat vegetables, chicken strips, or fish sticks without his precious hummus, so I had wanted to make some for a while, however, every recipe calls for tahini. Being an ignorant American white girl, I have no idea what that is. I looked in the spice section, but could find nothing of the sort. Finally found this tahini-free recipe, doubled the garlic (you can almost never have too much garlic; I say almost because I did have one instance where there was just too much, which I had previously thought was not possible! Also, I have  tried garlic ice cream at the Gilroy Garlic Festival and realized some things should never have any garlic in them!) What was I saying? Oh yes, this was super easy and so delish!


  1. Tahini is sesame paste - you can find it in the middle eastern section at the grocery store. = ) Trader Joe's also has a tahini blend that is basically the same thing. I make a LOT of hummus at our house!

    1. Your post ended up in spam, so sorry it took so long for me to respond! Thank you for the info! I really should not assume I know what something is before I go shopping! I could save myself so much trouble. I appreciate your commenting & now I know where to look! Love Traders! :)


Please share your thoughts. I'm eager to know! I read and appreciate every single one.
