This hummus can be made 1 day ahead. Keep it refrigerated, and bring to room temperature before serving. Tahini is a paste made from sesame seeds and can be found in many grocery stores."

This is great!! I saw it on another recipe site, then saw it here on Zaar! We really enjoyed it, and I've never had luck with making my own hummus. I'm SO counting in my head how much money we'll save making our own from now on. (fwiw, I was out of tahini, so I used 1/3 cup ground sesame seeds and 1/4 tsp dark sesame oil and 1/2 tsp olive oil instead. I'm sure it will be even better with prepared tahini.) Thanks for posting!
