    Chandra M's Note:

    There are quite a few recipes already on zaar for hummus, but not quite the same recipe. I adapted the technique from Cooks Illustrated, and find it gives a very fluffy, not grainy texture. The cooking time includes 1 hour chill time, which can be cut short if necessary, but the flavors won't develop as nicely.

      Yum! This is great tasting hummus. The spice, lemon juice and garlic proportions are just right. Mine still turned out slightly grainy, but I think that's my fault, not the recipe's. Who cares, anyway? It's still delicious. I will make this often--thanks, Chandra.
