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!
This is a great quick 15-minute hummus. I replaced the crushed pepper Flakes with a boatload of cumin because I really love cumin. Doubled up on the lemon juice and smooth things out a little more with a little bit extra olive oil. But this still is one of the best fast 15-minute afternoon snack ideas out there. I added a picture but let's face it hummus is not exactly a photogenic food.
We added a 1/2 fresh red pepper instead of flakes and a dash of sesame oil. Substituted 2 1/2 TBS lemon juice for the fresh lemon. This took quite a while to get the right consistency in a blender, my husband was shaking the blender while it was on to get everything down into the blades, so at the least, this was a pretty entertaining recipe.
