This hummus is delicious on its own. It a Basic Homemade Hummus recipe though so you may want to add in other ingredients to “spice it up” some.

Try some cilantro, Jalapenos, sun dried tomatoes, avocado, artichokes, curry, toasted sesame seeds, spinach, kale, Frank’s red hot sauce, Sriracha, or chipotle peppers in adobe sauce. Add any of these or even a few of them right into the food processor. Experiment until you find exactly how you like it best or just use it the way it is without additions. They are not necessary; they will just give variety if you need it.

Serve with vegetables as a dip or spread on a wrap for a hearty sandwich.

Keep it in the refrigerator for up to a week or freeze it up to 3 months.

This recipe is adapted from 100 Days of Real Food.

What is tahini and where to I find it?

Tahini may be a little bit of a different ingredient to some folks. It is just ground sesame seeds and like ground peanuts, you find it near the peanut butter in most stores.
