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.

This was excellent. Could have used a bit more olive oil to make it a bit creamier. The mint was a nice touch.

if I don't have the tahini, what else I could use and in what quantities according to recipe.

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.

Please also indicate garlic amount in average size cloves. Also would be good to indicate how much net chickpea (drained to take).

Yummy! Great recipe. I wasn't sure if I should drain the chickpeas. I decided to drain them. Turned out great.

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.
