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!

  • 2 peeled garlic cloves

  4. 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!

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