What Can I Use As A Substitute For Tahini In Hummus?

Okay if you’ve not got any tahini you can switch it out for any nut butter. Good nut butters to try are..

  • Peanut butter
  • Amond butter
  • Cashew butter

Watch the salt content though – you may want to taste more carefully before adding in extra salt.
