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 :)
- 1 (15 ounce) can chickpeas, drained
- 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
- 2⁄3 tablespoon peanut butter, creamy
- 2⁄3 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
- 1 -2 garlic clove, crushed
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice
- 1 -3 tablespoon stout beer (either a good oatmeal stout or anything with mouthfeel but not a lot of hops)
- 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.
- Combine all the ingredients into a food processor and process on high for approximately 10 minutes (or until your desired consistency).
