This Lemon & Dill Hummus is delicious, healthy, and incredibly easy to make. You can improvise with whatever herbs or flavors you like. Some people like their hummus plain with a little seasoning, others like roasted garlic, dried tomatoes, fresh herbs, etc. I recently bought a dill plant at the farmer’s market and decided to add fresh dill and lemon to my hummus. I also used Tahini. Not all hummus recipes use Tahini, but I like the flavor that it adds to the hummus. What is Tahini? Tahini is a paste of ground sesame seeds. It looks kind of like peanut butter, and you only need to add a little bit to your batch. You can find Tahini in the international food aisle in your supermarket. Don’t be dismayed by the price of it though – the bottle will last a long time in your refrigerator and will generate numerous batches of hummus. Enjoy!
