This recipe makes me question why anyone would ever buy humus instead of making it (no shame to those few who prefer the store bought though). It is SOOOO easy and relatively inexpensive once you have the tahini. Variations can be introduced pretty easily. I have done roasted red pepper and spinach and herb but have always wanted to try ones like artichoke, roasted garlic, and olive. So have fun with it. I feel like there are certainly some brains that are more creative than mine out there that could come up with some amazing ideas for this incredibly basic recipe.
