commonly eaten in the Mediterranean and the Middle East.
Chickpeas: Chickpeas form the base for hummus. These softened beans break down to
form a smooth paste.
Tahini: Tahini is a paste made from ground sesame seeds, and it is instrumental in
making the hummus taste incredible.
Making hummus without tahini: There are two camps in the hummus-loving world.

it has all those who can go without it. So you can leave it out if you want to make

extra olive oil. You can also opt for another option that uses a natural unsweetened
creamy peanut butter in its place.
