This creamy, garlicky Middle Eastern dip is unbelievably simple to make – and you can do it for a fraction of the price of the store-bought versions.
There's no need to buy sesame seeds just for garnishing. Alternative garnishes could include black olives, lemon zest, a little paprika or a drizzle of olive oil.
Used different ingredients. A fool-proof recipe - made a lovely creamy hummus. My only tweaks were adding a spoonful of tahini and a little black pepper. Will definitely make again! - 22 Aug 2008
Altered ingredient amounts. I added peanut butter as an alternative to tahini and chilli to the mixture - delicious!! - 09 Jun 2009
Altered ingredient amounts. Such an easy recipe and so nice (thanks Maggie). I made it the second time with less olive oil and a added some cold water instead and also added some balsamic roasted onions. I've since made it adding juice of whole lemon, some fresh corriander and some jalapeno peppers. - 13 Sep 2010
