Hummus without Tahini


Hummus dip is one of those great all round accompaniments to so many meals. Use it with vegetables or crackers as a dip or spread it on flat breads to go with salads and meats and wrap it all up. It’s a yummy side dish for lamb or beef. I prefer Hummus without Tahini as I find sesame seeds do not like my throat. I always feel an itchiness in my throat or find that it creates mucous. Hummus without Tahini is just as tasty if not more so.
