This is a great hummus variation and has a cool purple hue!! Hey, who wouldn't love purple hummus? But like the last reviewer, I found it needed a lot more citrus juice. I used about 2 1/2 Tbsp lemon juice and 1 1/2 Tbsp lime juice. Extra cumin and just 1/8 tsp cayenne for me, as well. I sauteed the garlic briefly with rosemary to mellow the flavor, instead of roasting it. This is a keeper!

This was a very nice hummus. I liked the addition of black beans along with the more traditional chickpeas. I only made a half-batch but used double the lemon juice called for even for that amount. Either we like our hummus quite tart, or the recipe doesn't have enough as it stands. The roasted garlic provided a richer, more subtle flavour than the usual raw garlic. Enjoyed this with pita crisps.
