How to Make Hummus Without Tahini

You will need a food processor or blender to combine the ingredients for this hummus, then you can simply transfer it into a serving dish.

The garbanzo beans, which are also known as chickpeas, can be cooked fresh ones or well-drained canned ones. Use fresh lemon juice if you have it, and you will also need salt, natural creamy peanut butter and fresh garlic.

We like to drizzle olive oil on top and sprinkle on some parsley and paprika, since they add to the flavor and also look great but you can omit those if you prefer.
