I don't know what to say that other reviewers already have. I loved this version of hummus!
It wasn't overpowering of garlic (folks go overboard too many times with garlic in hummus in my opinion). A great balance of flavors: spicy, tangy. I used one can of Westbrae organic garbanzo beans and instead of water to thin the hummus the bean liquid was used. Westbrae's brand is not as high in sodium either yet I was careful not to add too much to the dip. Went really well with a standard dish I prepare when I don't know what to make for dinner: Persian Eggs Poached in Tomato Sauce Reviewed for NA*ME tag.

By far the best hummus recipe we have come across. DH was using his fingers to get every last bit out of the blender. I loved how exact amount weren't given because everyone really does have different tastes when it comes to those parts. I used about half a lemon, a teaspoon of garlic, 1/4 tsp salt, and a couple dashes of pepper. Perfect!! Absolutley love the flavor the tamarind gives here & this will be our new favorite for sure. Thanks so much Ummbinat!! Made in honor of the lovely VIP for Veggie Swap 31!!

I am a hummus nut and this is a nice twist on the traditional hummus. If I hadn't made hummus before, I might have had a bit of a hard time determining how much garlic and lemon juice to add but I must have guessed right because it turned out to be really tasty. I had mine with some rice crackers and carrots. Made for vegetarian swap.

We don't eat dips very much in our house but when we do I will have to remember this recipe! I like the interesting blend of flavors...a sort of fancy hummus. I really wish I would have had ginger to add to it since I think that would have been a nice flavor to have in it. I had this for lunch with pitas and Fatit Hummus (Chickpea Casserole) Thanks for sharing this.

My this was good and so different! I loved the slight sweet tart flavor added to the hummus! I halved the recipe and served with crackers and carrots. Thanks! Made for Everyday is a Holiday game.

This was very good hummus, especially with carrots and celery. However, for the extra trip to India mart for the tamarind paste, I wouldn't say the flavor was worth it. But it was very good. Thanks for posting!
