I have only had hummus a couple times, but yesterday made my own for the first time. I read through so many recipes online before I decided what to do. I did see a note that said you don't really have to put tahini in it, and since I don't even know what that is, I left it out. I, and my DIL thought it turned out great! I used canned chick peas, dry garlic powder, olive oil, cumin, in my food processor, and added some of the liquid from the can on chick peas until it reached the desired consistancy. Next time I intend to add some roasted red peppers, and maybe some other things for different flavors. I will eat this with my celery stix instead of cream cheese. Much healthier.

Tahini is sesame seed butter.

You can use a little toasted sesame oil to get that flavor. I like to put a bit of lem8n juice, ground coriander and cayenne in mine.

I've had a can of garbanzos in the cupboard for a week, but I'm holding out to find the tahini paste/oil or whatever it is.
I've noticed one of the commercial hummus makers have been advertising hummus a lot on TV lately.

This is a great variation - I've made it many times with less olive oil:
CILANTRO JALAPENO HUMMUS
Cilantro Jalapeno Hummus - Garnish with Lemon | Garnish with Lemon

Oh, yes, I put some lemon juice in mine, too. I don't have coriander, but I could add some ceyenne for a little kick.

I've got chickpeas in the fridge. I think I need to convert those to hummus tonight. I love hummus and make it lots of different ways.

I enjoy hummus with roasted red peppers. Of course, I think roasted red peppers can go into most things.

My two favorite hummuses (hummi?) are either with kalamata olives or with extra lemon juice and a bit of lemon zest. Instead of making salads some nights I put out a relish platter with scads of different raw and lightly blanched veggies, hummus, and a dip or two. So much fun to just munch!

Pork chops celery and rosemary and puree them in the food processor instead of tahini.
