I don't usually like hummus, but LOVE this recipe. The mint is such a delicious addition. I eliminate the cumin and throw in lots of lemon, garlic, mint, and parsley. Would be great with kalamata olives, too.
Great base recipe! I used 8 cloves of garlic and used peanut butter instead of tahini (I don't like the flavor), then added about a tablespoon of sesame oil. I also added a little onion powder, cracked black pepper, and extra cumin. Inplan on adding chipotle peppers in the future for an added kick.
Nice and easy to make, but I think there is something wrong with the amount of garlic in recipe, perhaps it should have been 2 teaspoons or 2 cloves. My 2 Tablespoons was a whole bulb of garlic. There was a real strong taste that did not seem right, so I had to double the recipe to fix, obviously without the garlic this time. Then it tasted quite nice.
Thankyou Cyrano - this is a fantastic and simple recipe. My only recommendation is if you are making it for a party make twice as much as you think you'll need - because if your like my wife and me you'll be eating it straight before your guests arrive and they will absolutely love it.
