    Cookgirl's Note:

    Adapted only a little from The Lavender Cookbook. If you don't have tahini, you could substitute almond butter, sunflower butter, flax seed butter, etc. Recipe tested using tahini. I used homegrown and dried lavender buds which were lightly crushed in a pestle and mortar. Hummus was served with chapati chips. In summer I will try fresh lavender for this recipe.
