Changed a few things.... I only used 2 Tablespoons of Light olive oil and added 4 tablespoons (1/4 cup) of the bean juice (I did not rinse the beans either). I used 3/4 cup or so of pickled Jalapeno slices, added 4 sliced green onions, 1/2 teaspoon cumin, 1/4 teaspoon of pepper, 1/4 cup lime juice & the zest of the lime and a little more Cilantro than called for. I feel 1/2 cup of Olive oil is way to much to add to it... the bean juice from the can worked very well and made a very wonderful Hummus that is a bit healthier! 5 stars & thanks for sharing! :)

A day without hummus is...is...okay. It's okay, but just "okay". Makes sense?
