    I made this recipe for the 4th of July. I added sun dried tomatoes and minced garlic when I mixed it in the food processor. I really added alot of flavor. This is a definite make again recipe.

    Started out wanting to “test” this recipe and ended up using fresh garlic. But the “test” was SO good! A big two thumbs up for this recipe.

    This is the best recipe ever! Everywhere I take it gets rave reviews and I have started carrying copies of it with me. People are even happier to hear how low fat it is.

    I am spoiled as my experience with hummus has been homemade by a mediterranean cook, but this hummus tastes pretty good, as good as any store-bought anyway. I made it with half the beans and twice the spices except the sesame seed oil as I don’t like the taste of chick peas very much. I also added a lot more lemon juice as I like it to have a bit of a sour kick. I think next time I will use the suggestion to add the sun dried tomatoes and fresh garlic, that sounds like it will give it a more intense flavor. Super easy to make with a food processor, for once I didn’t dirty up half the dishes in my kitchen.
