I love hummus. Well, my own hummus.
I discovered hummus about five years ago and was hooked because I love beans. But, there was a flavor I couldn’t pinpoint that seemed ‘off’ to me, so I did some research and found out it was the tahini I didn’t care for.
Which is weird, because tahini and garbanzo beans are what make hummus hummus. Without tahini, you just have beans.
Or, so I thought. I played around with the recipe and came up with my own. If you’re a traditional hummus fan, you might not like this recipe. If you enjoy any kind of hummus, you’ll be happy.
The nice thing about this recipe is that the measurements are flexible. Aside from the two cans of beans, you can adjust the amount of the other ingredients to your personal preference. (I vary it a bit every time depending on what I have on hand) and I always love it. And eat whole thing in a few days.
Here’s my Tahini-free Hummus recipe:
|With more salsa and turmeric|
I love this recipe because, with all the phases of tasting, I get to eat half of it while making it.

That hummus recipe sounds really good. I love it, but I've never attempted to make it. I'm so jealous of all your Publix items. There isn't one near where I live now, and I miss them.
I hope this week this year is much better for your mom.
Have never tried humus, with or without tahini. But I love beans, so I might have to experiment. 😉
Hope you mom just feels better and better. 🙂

Many prayers for your mom's continued recovery.
Have a nice weekend!

I have never tried hummus. Not much into beans. My husband however, will eat plain boiled beans with just a little salt for breakfast. Ewww. I'll take my peanut butter on toast with just a touch of Nutella, thank you.
I do hope your Mom continues to improve. Wow, 91 is an impressive age.

I loved the "humerous humerus" doctor. Hope all appointments go well; what a lovely woman your mom is! That hummus looks interesting; I can count on one hand how many times I have had hummus but I do like each and every time I've had it; might need to make this sometime; thanks for sharing your recipe with us 🙂
Your mom looks so sweet in that pic. 🙂 I hope her appointments go very well this week.
I've never tried hummus. It's sounds healthy and tasty.:)
Hope you have a great weekend!

I love your blog and am your newest follower and thanks for following me.
I love hummus and am going to try this – never put salsa in it before.
I am new so I am not sure about what happened to your mother – but I hope and pray she will be okay. 91 cool.
Robyn Campbell says
Gonna try this recipe! I start a new diet tomorrow. *sigh* Guess what?? We cannot eat entire bags of Bliss chocolate and not gain weight. Take it from one who has experimented with this. *deep sigh*
Thank you for your prayers, my friend. Mwah!

Awww that is a cute picture of your mom! As for the hummus I was all prepared to try it until I saw flaxeed oil. Is that really normally in hummus. See that's why its better not to know what goes in stuff. Flaxeed oil and I had a disagreement in 2004 when I was pregnant and I'm still holding a grudge. LOL! Blah.
I just used the can of tuscan cannelini beans I bought to ty hummus out with my chicken for dinner. Luckily, now I have this recipe of yours to try!! Hope there is some humor and less pain for your mom!
