robgil 4y agoExcellent starting point! I've always wanted to make hummus, and since using this recipe, I've gotten it where we like it most. I've doubled the garlic and lemon juice, added smoked paprika and roasted ground cumin. Also, since I can never find tahini that isn't bitter, I've subbed natural peanut butter and toasted sesame oil. Works really well!
darrent 4y agoNice and easy
Chchrist007 5y agoI did this without the salt, and the result was very popular here. There is probably plenty of salt in the canned chickpeas, and I am concerned about my blood pressure, since I have had hypertension all my adult life. I gave this recipe 4 stars instead of 5 because it called for too much salt.
123stacy 6y agoGreat recipe! I doubled the garlic to suit our tastes.
amandakrylo 7y agoVery good and very easy. A bit too salty for my taste, next time I will start off with half the amount of salt.
