                  1. Soak garbanzo beans for six to eight hours.
                  2. Rinse and place beans in pot, cover with 3 cups of water and bring to boil for one hour.
                  3. Drain and set aside cooking water, rinse under cold water for 2 minutes.
                  4. Place the beans in a colander (saving the cooking water of course) and begin to rinse the beans under cool water. While gently turning the beans with a wooden spoon. Most of the skins should fall off.
                  5. Place garbanzo beans on a sheet pan and pick out the skins and dispose of them.
                  6. Place sesame seed and olive oil in your food processor and combine.
                  7. Add deskinned garbanzo beans and blend in your food processor. Gradually add the reserved garbanzo bean water until the hummus is as creamy as you would like it.
                  8. Add seasonings, almond butter, lemon juice, garlic and kosher salt.
                  9. Process until well blended, make sure to scrape sides.
