I just love hummus. It is one of my absolute favorite appetizer and snack recipes.

This variation on a traditional hummus recipe was originally shared by Gena, from Prince George BC, Canada. Here is what she says about her recipe:

Instead of Tahini in your hummus recipe use toasted sesame oil. Gives your hummus a very unique flavor. Also use a combination of toasted garlic with a fresh garlic clove. The more ‘fresh’ garlic cloves used, the spicier your hummus. I use a very fine natural lemon juice instead of reconstituted which can be bitter.

  • 1 - 19 ounce can chick peas, drained
  • 1/3 cup toasted sesame oil
  • 1/2 cup roasted garlic
  • 1 clove fresh garlic, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice


Step 1

Combine all ingredients in a blender. If too thick to blend properly gradually add a little olive oil until well blended, or you can add a little of the juice off the chick peas.

Serves about 8 to 10 as an appetizer.

Very simple, quick and easy to make.

This is such a fabulously healthy recipe. Each ingredient in it has tremendous health benefits.

This delicious hummus recipe is perfect for so many specialized diets. It is great as a diabetic recipe, in moderation as the chick peas are a higher carb food. It is also gluten free so perfect for those on gluten free diets.
