My mother is the person who first got me interested in making hummus.  I bought her a food processor for her birthday last year, and she told me she had used it to make some homemade hummus that was really good.  I decided to try out a few recipes including the one she was using.  Before long, I wanted to come up with my own version.  Mine has more ingredients than the other recipes I tried, but I think it’s worth it because those extra ingredients give it more flavor.


Before I made hummus, I didn’t know what tahini was or where to find it.  Now I know it’s a paste made from sesame seeds. You can find it at your grocery store next to the peanut butter.  Some brands package it in a can, and other brands have it in jars.  This is the brand I’ve been using, but just get whatever you want. Tahini

For dippers, you can use crackers, cut vegetables, or grilled pita bread cut into wedges.  I like using red bell peppers as dippers.  I just cut them into squares, and they work great.  Enjoy!
