Tips From the Test Kitchen

Spices

Are you looking to spice things up? You can easily add some kick to this recipe by adding cayenne pepper or red chili pepper. We love to top this hummus with homemade garlic chili oil for added flavor (and spice)!

Specialty Ingredients

Tahini

This recipe uses Tahini, which is a middle eastern condiment, made from hulled sesame seeds. It provides the signature nutty flavor of hummus. You can usually find bottled tahini at the grocery store near the peanut butter, or other nut and seed butters. Many people wonder if this specialty ingredient can be skipped. The answer is yes, you can make hummus without Tahini, but we prefer the added nutty flavor in our recipe.
