"I grew up eating hummus and just love the stuff. I was pleasantly surprised recently when a friend informed me that it is included on WW, of course in limited amount! It can become addictive, but it may not be for everyone, tho it can grow on you....Of course, as most people know, it is a Middle Eastern staple, but is eaten by many people of many ethnicities. It is sometimes used as a spread in place of butter. Most use it as a dip served with pita wedges or crudites (veggies). It only takes 15 minutes to whip up, and 2 hours of chilling."

"I happened to have all the ingredients for this on hand and wanted to use up some of my sesame seeds. I had Good Seasons Italian dressing mix which is vegan so used that instead of the cheese garlic. I really like the taste of this and it's so easy. I used the food processor which didn't do a good job of breaking down the sesame seeds though. Next time I'll use the blender and blend the seeds first until they're smooth, then add the other ingredients. I think my processor is just too big for the tiny sesame seeds. I had to taste some before chilling, but I know it will be even better after it mellows for a while. A nice recipe."
