    Is it possible to make hummus without tahini? I can't find it anywhere. I know it's a paste made from sesame seeds....could I make my own?

    Hummus is made with chick peas.

    Sorry, I think I misread. You want to make the tahini.

    I have made some pretty *okay* hummus with chickpeas, parsley, garlic, lemon, S&P and sesame oil. But, yeah, tahini is prefered.

    Yes it is often made leaving out the tahini, a mistake in my opinion but often done. But hummus is forgiving and open to your own interpretations . . . My kids lovve it when I make it with kidney beans lol !
    I would never make mine without high grade olive oil but I think adding a tablespoon or so of sesame oil might help if you could not find tahini (It's often in the peanut butter section). You could easliy grind your own sesame seeds in a small mill grinder but it would take A LOT. I would try ordering online; look for someone who offers free shipping, and you get to skip paying sales tax if it comes from out of state.
