I absolutely love hummus and I would love to make this and give it a try. I know this is probably a dumb question, but what is tahini? Sounds like a fish, but I am sure it is a type of bean maybe? Do you have any recipes for adding “toppings” on the hummus to jazz it up? Thanks!

    LOL. Tahini is simply sesame seeds grounded up into a creamy butter. One could use an unsweetened sunflower butter (which I love), in place of it. I love roasted red pepper hummus. I will definitely add those recipes soon. Thanks for the suggestion and your comment.
