I made a lovely batch yesterday with different ingredients and NO OIL, was lovely,

I just used a bit of the brine in the can, no fresh garlic just garlic powder, lots of lemon juice and a spoonful of PB and a spoonful of sambal....super healthy and fat free x

I use regular peanut butter and prefer it to Tahini, nothing special just the store bought one, either smooth or crunchy, what ever I have in, I only used a tablespoon full and makes the hummus delish ! Alss a lot cheaper than tahini..give it a try ! my hummus gets raved about and requested and no one is aware that its PB and not Tahini

I make my own hummus, thus I also make my own tahini (it is way too expensive at our local store). If you have a store that sells sesame seeds in bulk this is a plus.

4 Cups Sesame Seeds
1/4 C Olive Oil

Spread seeds on cookie sheet and bake for 8 - 10 minutes at 350.
They should come out ever so lightly browned.
Put seeds and oil in a blender and mix till a nice paste texture.
Tada...you just made tahini for pennies.

I make a huge amount at once and store in a jar in the fridge.

Yeah I hear you, I only have one major grocery store near me, so often if they don't have something, I'm screwed. Oddly enough, Target seems to have some stuff that my grocery store doesn't though. You could also order online on amazon, if you have the time to wait for delivery.

I don't have any and couldn't find it to save my life at my Walmart. Unfortunately, I don't live anywhere near any other big grocery chains that may have it. Thank you!!!

You can try natural peanut butter (NOT stuff like skippy/jif... just the kind with nuts and oil). Your hummus will taste different than if it's made w/ tahini, but it will still be good. Other nut butters should work too. Just curious, why not use tahini?

Can someone give me a substitute for tahini paste that they've used in making hummus? Thanks!!!
