    Great alternative for hummus when I have no chick peas in the house. Having a husband with diabetes and high cholesterol, any proteins I can get from beans is great.I figure I can always change it up with different spices. At 12 servings/50 cals per if we split it we get 300 cals each for a meal. - 2/5/09

    I ditched the sage and used dill instead. Its a good meat replacement. If used used instead of meat have 3 servings at 150 cals and serve with veggies. - 5/1/08

    I have done this with a variety of beans sometimes adding hot peppers or green onions chopped. I have done this with green peas for a mockamole. Think outside the box!!! Try cumin instead of the sage - 1/6/09

    Very tasty. I did double the garlic and I think next time I will add even more. It made a great late night snack with bread sticks (garlic flavored, of course). - 1/14/09

    We actually love to just spread the roasted garlic on crackers, pita, toast, etc. It's yummy all by itself and surprisingly, quite mild. - 1/31/09

    I'm a terribly lazy cook, so I substituted garlic powder for the roasted garlic and it was still VERY yummy! Thanks for the recipe! - 5/13/08

  • I don't even typically like beans (though I do love hummus), but this recipe was AWESOME!! I used 1/8 tsp ground sage instead of fresh and added some cumin. Delicious spread on a flour tortilla and rolled up with some cooked spinach and asparagus. YUM! Will make this a "must bring dip" for parties!! - 4/4/13

  • Family doesn't like chick peas/garbanzos but this was great even though my blender base leaked & I lost a lot of the olive oil & lemon juice. Used 3 cloves of garlic. - 10/24/11

  • I really liked this! Left out the sage because I'm not a fan, and added more garlic because I am a fan of that. It looked less than appetizing at first, but when I put it in my mouth, wow did my mind change! Gets garlickier over night, so keep that in mind if you are not a fan. - 6/15/11

  • I'm new to making this kind of thing. I used a sprig of basil, raw garlic - 2 cloves, 2 tsps of lemon juice and 2 tbsps olive oil. I ended up adding three more tsps of lemon juice (juice of half a lemon total) because I couldn't taste it at all, but other than that it was lovely. :-) - 2/10/11

  • I'm afraid I wouldn't put the oven on for 30 minutes or so, to roast just 2 cloves of garlic.
    Now if it were 2 bulbs.... maybe.
    But it is certainly something I could do, when i get around to doing a packet of dried beans a day - soaking 1 day, cooking the next, then portioned into the freezer. - 12/7/10

    Sounds like an ordinary White bean salad we make which is with whole beans, but I guess you can also smash the beans with a fork so you have more consistency and more to chew on.
    Follow the receipe with 2 cloves of garlic and not 2 heads like someone suggested.. and I would only use 2 sage leaves. - 1/6/09

  • the recipe calls for 2 "cloves" of garlic, but I think they mean 2 "heads" of garlic. 2 cloves (the individual segments) roasted would not have much garlic flavor. - 1/6/09

    Health wise it is quite a bit of oil, but alot of protein. I didn't care too much for the sage taste and it didn't compare with hummus. The roasted garlic was great (that was the first time for me to roast it. - 7/10/08

    Was this review helpful?   yes  No
  • Yes, it would work with chickpeas -- I've made something very similar. If the consistency is too thick, add a bit of lemon juice or reduced fat/reduced sodium chicken stock to taste when processing. - 7/10/08

  • This does sound good and pretty easy to make. But getting the white beans will be hard for me. Do think it will work with chick peas instead or another canned bean - black or northern maybe? - 7/9/08

  • I make this with a few changes. I add more lemon juice and zest, less oil, raw garlic chopped fine and a few red pepper flakes to jazz up the flavor a bit. Any herb taste pretty good in it, I've used basil or rosemary. It's really good and good for you. - 12/28/07

  • I plugged this into MasterCook and came up with 79 cal per serving, but that's still ok. Based on a 15 oz can of beans, one serving would be about 2 1/3 Tbsp. (7 tsp.). I haven't made this yet, but it sounds yummy, and I may try it for New Year's. - 12/28/07

    Was this review helpful?   yes  No
  • I'm going to give a guess that a serving is about 1/4 C. or 2 ounces based on the beans being 24 ounces without the liquid in the cans. Anyone got a better idea? I'm going to try the recipe, I love hummus and all types of beans. - 12/28/07
