Humus with Tahini
This is a good fast recipe, about 10 minutes. If you are having friends over and need things to pick on. Just be sure to have enough bread for everyone. Most of the ingredients should be in the cabinet already.
Because this is so simple it was extremely popular back in the eighties but really has never disappeared which is a tribute to its constant popularity.
This should be enough for 6 people with a couple of other small things to pick on. Try marinated artichoke hearts and some thinly sliced salami.
