      Asked my husband how he likes tahini-less hummus. His voice, muffled and overfilled said, "Rrrrhis rooood!" I was inexplicably happy not to miss that spectacle. Made for PRMR.

      I used sour cream instead of ricotta too, but LOVE THE RECIPE! I used fresh basil and did it up in the food processor. WOW! I am a huge fan of Trader Joe's Mediterranean hummus, but not huge on Sabra's brand! This hit the spot and even better it was homemade! Thanks for sharing a great recipe!
