Hummus with a twist

Since I don't particularly like the taste of Tahini which is an important compoment in the making of Hummus , I came up with my own twist ! and it is toasted sesame seeds instead of tahini. I made this and brought to work and everyone loved it to a great extent . Many have asked me for the recipe. So here you go !


  • 2 cans of chickpeas washed and drained
  • 1/4 cup of extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 tbs of toasted sesame seeds
  • coarse sea salt to taste
  • 1 lemon juice
  • 2 cloves of garlic

  • Pulse chickpeas in food processor
  • Add sesame seeds and garlic
  • Add oil slowly while alternating with lemon juice until you achieve a smooth paste
  • Add salt to taste

Drizzle with more olive oil and smoked paprika, serve with toasted pita bread
