A classic homemade hummus recipe with a toasty twist. Begin with all the traditional ingredients of chickpeas, fresh garlic and tahini for a savory base, then top with coriander, cumin and lightly-toasted black sesame seeds for some extra flare and flavor.

    3 cloves garlic, smashed

    3/4 cup tahini
