Sesame Seed Oil Hummus Recipe
Sesame seed oil is substituted for tahini in this quick and easy recipe for hummus.
This is delicious! Used 3 cloves garlic. Will make again and again. Love the sesame oil
This yummy hummus is made with all the traditional ingredients - garbanzo beans, tahini, lemon juice, and olive oil - and includes sun-dried tomatoes and fennel seed.
Have always enjoyed hummus but started making my own only a few years ago. I decided to make this recipe but found the hummus too thick for my taste. So since I had already discarded the liquid leftover in the chick pea can, I gradually added a 50-50 mixture of water & sesame seed oil to reach my desired consistency. Surprisingly, that tiny bit of sesame seed oil gave the hummus such a nice flavor that it created quite a stir at the buffet table that evening. Almost everyone who tasted it wanted to know what I had done differently. I don't know if all my guests liked this variation but I observed a handful of them coming back for seconds and even thirds. I had doubled the recipe and added 4 tbsp. water & 4 tbsp. sesame seed oil. So for a single batch, I would make that 2 tbsp. each of water & sesame seed oil. However, if you really like the thicker consistency you end up with, why not add the sesame seed oil only?
Whether you're serving this with alongside chips or crudite or using it in a veggie sandwich, you'll love the taste of this creamy hummus flavored with a touch of peanut butter.
A straightforward hummus that may be augmented with roasted red peppers or olives. Serve with crackers, flat breads or on a pita with sprouts for a great light lunch.
Hummus with cooked sweet potatoes added to the mix is a colorful and tasty twist on the traditional hummus recipe.
Black beans make a delicious and healthy alternative to the usual garbanzo beans in hummus - your vegetarian friends and family will thank you!
