Notes

  • Tahini is a sesame seed paste that can be found in most grocery stores, near nut butters or in the ethnic foods aisle, or online. Or, if you’re feeling adventurous, you can even try making your own!
  • Blending the tahini, lemon juice, garlic, and seasonings before adding the chickpeas will give your hummus a lighter, smoother, whipped texture.
  • Feel free to adjust the seasonings according to your tastes! Hummus is a versatile snack choice and can be enjoyed with a variety of foods.
