    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

    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

    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
