    Chris from Kansas's Note:

    I like this recipe because it tastes like hummus but doesn't require you to have tahini.

      Excellent recipe, makes capital hummus with a nice, creamy consistency. Ironically, I finally found the tahini in my grocery store the day after I tried this. Right next to the matzoh balls and Shabbat candles, not in the Mediterranean section where I expected it... Anyway, I'll definitely hold on to this recipe in order to keep costs down. Thanks a lot!

      I needed a quick hummus recipe, but I couldn't find tahini ANYWHERE. I've never bought it before so i'm probably just overlooking it so i settled for toasted sesame seeds and hoped i could find a good recipe using them. I'm so glad i found this recipe! It was very easy and everyone loved it! I followed the recipe exactly but added a little bit of ground cumin because the flavor was very subtle (which is what i was going for). I will definitely make this again. So much easier than running around looking for the stupid tahini=D

      this is what i meant to say, a hummus that does NOT require going to the store, paying a million bucks for tahini, when I can find it and stirring the stuff for a long time until you can use. the recipe was delicous and tasted as if tahini was used, authentic and creamy.
