"If you like Hummus" is a great way to start this recipe because nearly 100 million Americans have no idea what Hummus is, and out of those who do, only about a quarter eat it regularly.
What Is Hummus?
How Do You Eat Hummus?
You can eat Hummus as a dip with pita bread or chips, or with whatever bread you have on hand. But it can also be used to replace mayo or mustard. I found a great site giving you 10 ways to eat Hummus, just click HERE.
Is Hummus Good For You?
Hummus is made with beans, ground sesame seeds, and oil (basically) so your nutritional benefits will include getting more protein (about 3g per 2Tbsp), fiber, and fat. If that doesn't sound like a good thing to you, then click HERE to learn how beans are not only good for you but help you lose weight in the process.
How To Make Your Own Hummus

If you already have Tahini paste at home, continue with the recipe instructions.
If you don't have Tahini at home and have no idea what it is, keep reading.
Tahini is a sesame seed paste, that in Arabic means "to grind"; and that's really all it is: ground up (hulled) sesame seeds. Tahini is normally used for hummus, but it's also used for Baba Ganoush, dressings, and sauces.
You can buy a jar for under $5 at Walmart, Target, and Trader Joe's, or choose to make your own. I found a great recipe for making your own Tahini HERE.
