a really creamy, light, delicately flavoured houmous - totally perfect & so easy to make. I think it's great as is, but my boyfriend decided to pep it up with a few drops of tabasco sauce. I used 6 tablespoons of water because I like quite a loose houmous.

I have been putting yohurt in my hummus for years preferring it to the large amounts of olive oil some other recipes call for. The dip was light but a little bland before seasoning so don't be tempted to skip it, the samal oelek would make a tasty addition. This made up enough for me to freeze in individual portions so I can take it to work. It is worth mentioning that if you dont have a food processor this takes a lot longer to make. I ended up having to puree the beans half a tin at a time in my magic bullet, then mix in the other ingredients THEN put it back in the bullet to mix it Phew!

I had mistakenly placed a can of butter beans into my shopping cart then wondered what on earth I'd ever do with it. Turned out to be one of those happy accidents because I was given a reason to try this creamy and delicious hummus. I used Homemade Tahini #73859, stopped at 3 tablespoons water, and seasoned using coarse-grind garlic salt with oregano. I served my hummus with toasted wedges of Greek Flatbread #68272. Thank you for a great easy recipe I'll gladly make again and again!

We loved this, so light and creamy. A useful store cupboard standby with a wonderful flavour; a definate 5 star recipe. I don't have any sambal olek and wasn't sure about trying to substitute anything, so was happy that it is an optional extra. Perhaps next time I'll try and get some. Thanks for the recipe Sylvie.

This hummus is so good!!! I love butter beans so I knew right away that this was a winner. It even tasted better the next day!! I did not have sambal olek and added some of its ingredients in a tiny amount... Outstanding!

This is truly an outstanding hummus! I admit I was a bit dubious about the butter beans, but it all turned out beautifully - plus so much less oil than usual, I love it! I definately recommend using the sambal olek, it does not make the dip spicy, just gives it this lovely warm glow and rounds out the flavours beautifully - an inspired addition! Thanks for my new favourite hummus recipe Sylvie!
