    YUM!!! This is easy to make and tastes great. I made the base recipe, and then added some roasted red peppers - even better. I will definitely be making this again~! - 1/24/09

    I use this recipe, too, but I only use 1.5 Tblsp Tahini, I leave out the olive oil to decrease the fat even more and I've been using the chickpea juice from the can...but I might try it with water instead. - 10/15/08

    It is wonderful! I added about 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper. Think I will add salsa or olives or ginger or roasted red pepper as others have suggested. - 8/4/09

    I have always used this recipe, and it is really great. If this is not a regular hummus ... what is? When my fiancée was in the Saudi Arabia, this is how they made it. Is the difference less olive oil? - 3/18/10

    Really good. Tastes a lot like the hummus I order at our local Greek restaurant. If you're not a garlic lover, you'll want to cut back a bit on the cloves. But perfect for me! Thanks. - 5/30/10

    The dip tastes OK, but nothing like hummus. I followed the instructions exactly and was really displeased with the results. Maybe if I didn't go into it expecting hummus it would be better. I'd rather "splurge" on regular hummus and fit it into my cals for the day This left a weird taste in my mouth - 5/17/09

    It was very easy and quick to make. I felt it was a bit too lemon tasting, so next time I'll cut back on the amount of lemon juice I use. Thanks for the recipe. I love that it's so much more low cal than store bought hummus. - 5/8/09

  • I was pleasantly surprised. This recipe is so simple that I didn't expect much. Used bean broth in lieu of water and about half the lemon juice called for. Used too much garlic but still good. Ate with Tostitos corn chips. Very nice. - 7/19/12
