    Yeah, you can definitely make it without the sesame paste! Here's a recipe:

    Ingredients:
    1 16 oz can of chickpeas/garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
    about 1/4 cup of olive oil (you have to use a fairly large amount since you're not using the oily sesame paste, but since you want your LO to eat more fat I guess that's a good thing!)
    1 small clove garlic
    salt, pepper, and cumin powder to taste
    water

    Put all ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth, adding water until you achieve the desired texture. (Can you believe they charge $4 a container for something that easy? )
    Coolest thing my big girl said recently: "How can you tell the world is moving when you are standing on it?"
    Coolest thing my little girl sang recently: "I love dat one-two pupples!"

    If you want to go non-traditional you can also experiment with different spices (I like smoked paprika) and things like roasted red peppers or olives.

    Are you doing nuts/seeds yet? DS loves having a little cup of sunflower seeds, and he hardly ever spills them.

    Recently, I started making giving him homemade tofu jerky, and he loves it! I made it in strips in the dehydrator (thin slices of tofu, lightly spiced, dehydrated at 140F until chewy), but I imagine that it could be made in an oven as well. It's high-protein, tasty (I love it, too!), and as non-messy as possible for a toddler. I actually let him walk around with it, one piece at a time.
