    This hummus is wonderful! I love the lemony flavor :) I have a severe garlic (allium) allergy -so hummus was something I couldn't eat. I've tired MANY recipes, leaving out the garlic, but this one is the very best! I finally have found one I love :) Thanks so much! - 10/30/12

  • I found out I'm allergic to garlic. I was so afraid that this wouldn't taste good, but it is outstanding! I make this a couple times a week now. - 2/15/13
