I'm not sure if I should've given this stars or not, because I kinda tweaked it a lot. Like a few others, I added 1/4 tsp. cumin and 1/4 tsp. paprika. It seemed like it needed "something" (besides the tahini...), so I added a tiny bit of salt, and on a whim, threw in about 1 1/2 Tbsp. creamy peanut butter. It is excellent! I love hummus, and making it without tahini is great! When I buy tahini I usually end up using it once or twice, because I forget I have it or it gets pushed to the back of the fridge by the men of the house that give it a funny look. Thanks!
Really good and oh so simple. I cut down on the lemon juice just a tad - too acidic for my tastes. Otherwise just perfect! I added a little smoked paprika for fun. :)
Worked great! Although, I found that my food processor didn't get the chick peas pureed enough. I had to use my hand blender to get everything to be the right consistency. I didn't use the red pepper flakes, but I added a 1/2 avocado. Yum!
The tahini makes the texture much more appealing and adds a great flavor, even just 2-4 Tbsp. Good flavor but it's a texture thing I guess.
This was great! I was craving hummus to go with my falafels but we were out of tahini. I also ran out of olive oil, so I added a splash of sesame oil. Like other reviewers, I added cumin. I also added a sprinkle of parsley. I will totally make this again, thanks!
I have made this twice and LOVE it!! I got hooked on hummus with the store bought stuff, and this is oh so easy and extra tasty. I took the advice of one of the other reviewers and added some chili powder and cumin for a nice round flavor. Definitely chill this before serving, it lets the flavor meld together. Excellent recipe, Thank you!!
I used this recipe at the restaurant I work at. I used it because I had no tahini. It was fantastic!! I added a little chili powder, ground red pepper, and cumin. Everyone loved it! Who needs to bother buying tahini? Now I can make it at home too. flytyr.
Loved it! Really delicious and great to add even just to toasts. Thank you!
Had to write again, as the hummus has been in the fridge for a few days. Added some hot paprika & this recipe without tahini is very, very good. I would make it again.
Okay, but I really missed the tahini. I was out and craving hummus, so this worked in a pinch but I think I'll go back to my regular recipe. If I tried this again, I think I'd follow other reviewers' suggestion to add cumin/paprika.
