We have this little market by us that sells some pretty epic hummus. Jaryd buys a ridiculous amount of it and raves about it so much that I had to give it a try.

Hummus made with tahini usually has an undercurrent of sesame because tahini is just ground up sesame seeds. But, this little market’s hummus was super infused with a delightful sesame flavor. It took me a couple bites of intrigue, but I realized that they doubled down on the sesame flavor.

I had to recreate it. I decided to give it a try and make my own version. While yes, store bought hummus is super convenient and fun, this hummus literally took me 5 minutes to make and I feel like everyone needs a go-to hummus recipe in their back pocket.

Listen, I love hummus. I love all dips, really. Sometimes my meals consist entirely of a bunch of different dips. A dip enthusiast, some may say.
