      Don’t Fret Helen, Hummus and can be bought at most stores alongside Tahini. I’m very sure you can get one at Shoprite. If you want the homemade one tho, kindly send a mail and we would be right at your doorstep.

      Mushrooms don’t have much of a distinct flavor; rather they tend to amplify the flavor of other ingredients in a dish. So you can always omit them.
