Hummus Bi Tahina

READY IN: 6mins
Recipe by Columbus Foodie

This recipe is slightly modified from "The Complete Cooking Light" Cookbook. This is great served with pita wedges or raw veggies. I like to garnish it with a spritz of olive oil and paprika.

This recipe is terrific! I like it much better than the stuff in the store. It is less expensive, you know what you're putting in it and it tastes fabulous! Thanks for the recipe Columbus!
