I love Hummus for a dip, as opposed to other, fatty types of dips. How much Tahini you add to Hummus determines how much fat it contains. This recipe calls for only 2 tablespoons.
Tahini is Sesame Butter, or ground sesame seeds. If you don't have any, you can leave it out. Or add 3 tablespoons of sesame seeds before blending to keep the flavor and add a little mini-crunch.
