  • Excellent! I left out the hot pepper flakes and substituted the broth for the liquid in the chick peas and it was wonderful and added sun dried tomatoes. My husband even liked it and he's a hard one for trying new healthy things :) Thanks for sharing! - 1/27/14

  • Very tasty. My first attempt at a homemade hummus and I like it. I wasn't sure how much a serving should be, so I went with 1/4 cup. - 2/19/10
