Tahini-Free Hummus

Tahini can be on the expensive side, difficult to find, and not get used as often as other staples in the kitchen. For me, personally, too much tahini makes my throat itch (unfortunate!) Here's a way to make a delicious hummus by substituting peanut butter for tahini!


Total Time: 5 minutes

Yield: 4 servings



  1. Put chickpeas, garlic cloves, peanut butter, juice of lemon, and parsley (if you're using it) in a food processor or blender.
  2. Pulse ingredients until smooth. Drizzle in oil with while blending.
  3. If the hummus is too chunky for you, slowly drizzle in water until you get the right consistency. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

  5. Drizzle with oil and sprinkle with paprika when serving, if you so desire. Enjoy!

What can be used as a suitable substitute if peanut butter is a big no-no due to severe food allergies?

If you are allergic to peanuts, you are likely allergic to other nuts as well. You could try a nut butter that you are not allergic to, maybe sunflower seed butter? Or you could try this version which has avocado instead of tahini or peanut butter:
