6. Sesame Oil Hummus Without Tahini

Sesame Oil Hummus Without Tahini

Sesame oil is literally oil pressed from sesame seeds. You can’t buy toasted sesame oil, not raw sesame oil, which doesn’t have as pronounced a nutty flavour. Raw sesame oil is often used for cooking/frying in Asian cuisine. Toasted sesame oil is more potently sesame-ish than tahini, so start with a smaller amount than you would normally use of tahini – say 1 tablespoon, blend it up, and taste and add more if you want a more pronounced sesame flavour. My favourite hummus is now made with a combo of tahini and sesame oil.  I also read that sunflower butter is a smart substitute for tahini in hummus, which makes sense.  Peanut butter was another suggestion I’ve heard, though I would think that would give you a very different hummus….but still one that I’ll be curious to try.

4. Hummus without Tahini is with Sunflower Seeds 

Hummus without Tahini is with Sunflower Seeds 

This is The Best Hummus Recipe Without Tahini. Why? We don’t just skip tahini and make a garlicky chickpea puree as most of the tahini-free hummus recipes would do. Nope. We found the perfect substitute which is roasted sunflower seeds (or sunflower butter). They add a nutty taste that you would need to wholeheartedly enjoy this dip as a proper hummus. Have you found this recipe because you were searching for the perfect hummus recipe without tahini? Did you so far end up short? Why? Because most tahini-free hummus recipes JUST SKIP TAHINI and they think that is all. You don’t want it so you don’t need it. Job well done. Well, we completely disagree. If you just skip it, you will end up making a nice and tasty chickpea puree instead of a proper hummus.
