Notes

I thought I would add my version of hummus. This is a very flavorful, easy to make recipe when you have a blender or food processor.

Hummus is a Middle-Eastern appetizer. Serve with Pita bread (traditional) or crackers.

If you like it a bit more tangy, add more lemon juice.

Tahini is ground sesame seeds. It has a somewhat bitter flavor. You can also adjust according to taste.
