    I've been making hummus for years. If you cut a lot of the tahini (even all of it), you save a lot of calories w/out losing too much flavor. Also, if you have a lot of time, peeling the chickpeas creates a much smoother texture. Extra garlic and cayenne can boost flavor make up for missing tahini - 1/22/09

    A trick I learned from The Candle Cafe in NYC is to mix the ingredients FIRST in a bowl, then process. It seems to help everything blend together better. - 7/11/09

    Love it! I love eating hummus with cukes and tomato on a tortilla wrap. I use sesame oil instead of olive oil and omit the tahini. I only use tahini for hummus and sesame oil can be used for stir fry and salads so using sesame oil helps me avoid spoilage problems. - 4/30/09

    I just used a little less oil and it still tasted fabulous! I also use the hummus as the bottom layer in a layered dip, along with guacamole, fresh tomato salsa, fat free sour cream, spring onions, fresh minced tomatoes, and grated low fat cheddar cheese. Delicious! - 6/27/08

    I love hummus and have a recipe I worked on for almost a year. I found that if I simmer the beans for about 10 minutes and allow to cool (and don't rinse), the texture is not as grainy and the flavor is more intense. I also use the remaining liquid to help thin the hummus is needed! - 10/8/08
