In Response to Re: Olive Oil vs Vegetable Oil : I do measure with this one to make the tahini,I toasted 1 cup of sesame seeds in a 350* oven for about 15 mins.I stir it often so it doesn't get too toasted.Let it cool down a little and put it in a food processor or blender, it will go from like a powder to lumpy then smooth like peanut butter add the EVOO when it's lumpy and process until smooth.So it's 1 cup of sesame seeds to 1/4 cup EVOO.That's it,it will store for up to 4 weeks in the frige.To make Tahini Hummus drain a can of garbonzo beans also know as chick peas reserve 1/4 cup of the liquid,place the chick peas in food processor along with 2 cloves minced garlic,3 tablespoons of lemon juice,1/2 teas.salt,1 1/2 Tablspoons of tahini,process until smooth and add the liquid from the chick peas and continue processing until it's all blended.Serve with toasted pita bread.I'm sure that oil is wonderful,my son will eat a whole loaf of italian bread with oil and spices.

Gale, Thank you for the recipe! I will be making my hummus next Wed., Wed. morning I will be going
to Sprouts to buy the sesame seeds. All their bulk items are 25% off thru next Wed. Lucky timing for
this one!! I got a lot of spices yesterday on the 1st day of their sale! We leave next Thurs. for 4 days
of camping so I have to have everything ready Wed. Thank you so much for this recipe. Your son is
as bad as my husband, I'm afraid that he will polish off the whole bottle of garlic olive oil in 1 sitting.
