Recipe for Hummus Without Tahini

Any hummus recipes without tahini? I have a lot of garbanzo beans I need to use up. Any other recipes using garbanzo beans would be good too. I don't want to buy anything special since I am moving soon and don't want extra ingredients to pack.

I have made this may times without tahini in a food processor. The mix, very simple, onions, salt, garlic, a little lemon juice. Save juice from garbanzo beans to thin as needed. There are many versions of hummus. I make mine thick to use as a spread for bread. Since tahini is only sesame seeds you can add a few sesames seeds.

You could try subbing a bit of peanut butter. or if you have almonds (even better), processing them into almond butter and using it.

I have a recipe for garbanzo bean cake that tastes like chocolate torte, but sorry, I'm not at home to get it. I think it was in Parade (Sunday) magazine about 9 years ago.

Just make the recipe without the Tahini.

I usually do.

if you want to add somehting to enhance the consistancy, I might skip peanut butter as it's flavour is stronger than tahini's, but some other lightger-flavoured nut butter night work instead.

I love hummus but not tahinni; so I just make it without. Olive oil, garlic, lemon, whatever seasonings you like.

I have to go on a Gluten free diet. I need some guidance as far as what I cannot eat, and some recipes to make.

Thank you for your feedback and assistance!
