This is almost - almost - my grandpa's famous garlicky hummus. I don't bother buying tahini since it just sits in the fridge after 1 use and goes bad, so I came up with using the ground sesame instead. I had a batch of mixed ground sesame and flax on hand, so thats what I used. This definitely tastes best when you've used home-cooked chickpeas!
