Recipe by Oolala

SO many good hummus recipes--here is another! Note: lemons at room temperature produce more juice than cold lemons!

Made this for Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup Jan-June 2012 tag game and I'm soooo glad I picked this recipe! Delicious!! I followed the instructions except for the Tabasco (didn't realize we were out) so I used wasabi as a previous reviewer did and I had a fresh meyer lemon from our tree that I used. Will be using this recipe again. Thank you for submitting. Served with fresh toasted pita bread.
