Hummus where the heart is

Hummus where the heart is

This toasted sesame hummus is full of warm and savory spices to fill your senses as well as your hummus-loving belly! As I like hummus so much, and make is so very often, I’m always trying to come up with new recipes and flavors. This one I came up with on a whim and It is certainly one I will be making again!

This hummus is unlike much of what you’d have before I suspect. The warm spices and toasted sesame oil gives this recipe a rich and layered flavor. I’ve eaten this with toasted pita bread as well as a variety of raw veggies… it’s been wonderful at each and every bite!
