Hummus in Hebrew is chickpea so this is not really hummus. It doesn’t have any chickpeas. But it’s made like hummus and have the same texture. The flavor is different and, in my opinion, more sophisticated but what is great about this recipe is that it’s legume-free, anyone with digestion problem can eat it. (Legumes make me bloated).
It’s important to use a good Middle Eastern tahini. A good tahini is a tahini that is made in an old-fashion way, where the sesame seeds are stone-ground.
