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.


Hummus without Tahini

Hummus without Tahini is a great accompaniment to almost any dish. It's creamy texture and tangy flavours work well with meat or vegetables.
