Let's face it, hummus is awesome but tahini, in most parts of America I imagine, is expensive! It's a good thing then that with a little thought there's an easy workaround. This recipe is decidedly *not* halal friendly so if you're looking for something to replace the beer I use just reserve an equal volume of the water from the can of chickpeas. It's not as flavorful and roasty, but it'll work for those with a more traditional palate :)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Open and drain the chickpeas, reserving the liquid from the can if you plan to use it in place of the beer called for in the ingredients list.
  2. Combine all the ingredients into a food processor and process on high for approximately 10 minutes (or until your desired consistency).
  3. Enjoy.
