This is an excellent recipe! I doubled this recipe with the only substitution being using dried cilantro instead of fresh. Fresh is always better and will make sure to have some available the next time I plan to make this recipe. We are new to hummus, but certainly picked a winner recipe for our introduction! Thanks so much for sharing!

I made this a while ago, but totally forgot to review it! It was so yummy! I didn't have any tahini, nor did I have time to go get any since I needed something very quickly to take to a church carry in, I also didn't have any Cilantro, so I left them out. It was so good, even without these two ingredients. I think I added extra garlic too, because we love garlic in our house. I served it with pita bread, but when all of the pitas were gone, I used the remaining hummus as a spread on a sandwich made with chicken lunch meat on some homemade garlic naan bread. Talk about delicious!I will make this again.

I made this for a family gathering, and it was completely gone! Great with veggies or chips. I used Goya black bean soup instead of the plain black beans for a little more flavor. Definitely a make again!

This is a nice variation on hummus, and I like the addition of ginger. As a matter of fact, I added half again as much ginger and cumin. I also followed a suggestion by a previous reviewer and add some of the bean liquid, as mine was very thick. Served with pita chips. Made for Fall 2008 PAC.

I'm a hummous lover from a way back and this was good! The secret little ingredient was the ginger. Next time, I'm going to try using fresh ginger for the ground and see what happens to my air passages. I love renditions of traditional hummous recipes and this one was placed in the permanent file. I would suggest reserving some of the bean liquid for help in blending. Thanks, Sandi!
