Some love the zesty, tangy flavor of tahini, others really like without it. For best hummus rivaling the best brands in the store, it is highly recommended that you include tahini


If you want to make sweet potato hummus without tahini, simply leave it out. A sweet potato without it is still acceptably delicious. 

Can I substitute peanut butter for tahini in sweet potato hummus?

These are the best tahini substitutes other than peanut butter:

1) Nut Butters like almond butter, cashew, Brazil nut or any combination of the above


2) Sun Butter- Sunflower seed butter also works really well as a tahini substitute

3) Greek Yoghurt

4) Sesame Oil

5) Sesame Seeds
