  • I accidentally added 2 tbsp of lemon juice but I just added more garlic and it turned out great! I never knew hummus was sooooo easy. I will play around now to come up with different flavors. I enjoyed this on pita. - 11/8/10

  • Really nice, first time I've tried it. I usually soak a large batch of beans overnight and cook & freeze them for use in meals as I need them, but I love this hummus. will be a regular addition each time I batch cook the beans. Thanks - 9/29/09

  • Hummus is my favorite right now. A nice think to add to "spice" it up is by adding red pepper flakes, about 1/8 teaspoon. Even my kids like it that way. - 9/18/09

  • Thanks so much for this quick and easy recipe. I used a little more garlic because I'm a garlic lover and it's really tasty.

    For some reason, though, my hummus came out awfully watery. I'll play with the ingredient portions going forward. - 8/24/09

  • I made something very like this last night and it made wonderful leftovers as well as initial meal. Cooked my own beans though, and that took a long time. Sure is an awesome alternative to other spreads. Good job! - 4/28/09
