Bean and Sesame Seed Spread (Easy Hummus)

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Chris from Kansas

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

Top Review by Bryan Stefan

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!
