    Boxerwing's Note:

    No tahini and you're craving hummus? No problem! Dig out that bag of sesame seeds lurking in your cupboard and make this wonderful chick pea dip. I wonder if toasting the sesame seeds first would be good... Usually hummus also calls for added oil which certainly does add richness, but lots of calories too. There is no (or little) added fat in this recipe so why not enjoy a healthy dip guilt-free?

      I loved the easyness of this recipe. The problem I had was that it was way too light for my tastes. I really liked the idea of using the chick pea liquid instead of olive oil but next time I will add much less of the liquid and supplement it with olive oil. I would aslo reccomend adding a dash of hot sauce to kick it up a little!

      Who needs to buy deli style plastic flavored hummus when this recipe is so easy and quick to whip up. Great protien subsitute for those fat-laden work lunches. This recipe leaves me feeling energized and not overly full when accompied by tiny baby carrots, radishes, spring onions. I also used this wonderful recipe as a spread on sesame crackers with spicy sprouts, cucumbers and red onions.
