I liked the flavor, it was great with pita chips and veggies too. I followed the recipe as written.
great, I used 1/2 the lemon, ty for all the suggestions, dont like cilantro so I used parsley. ty
Sorry, this didn't work for us. Way too much lemon- we had to add a 4th can of chickpeas just to try to balance it out (didn't work).
I love store-bought hummus, but this was absolutely awful. I don't know why, either. I was stoked about making it because it got such good reviews. I don't know what I could have done wrong, but I tried this and another recipe that was from Cook's Illustrated, and we hated each one. Back to store-bought for us!
I too use sesame oil, I love hummus I add turmeric to my version, but i love how versatile hummus is sometimes I add red roasted pepper, and chopped steamed Kale....I have never tried it with cilantro, must give it a try ;)
This is really good. Tahini is hard for me to find at times and other times I'm just flat out too lazy to make it. The sesame oil does the trick. I cut the recipe down to one can of chickpeas with excellent results. I dip fresh veggies in it for a tasty, nutritious snack.
Simply divine. I am always on the hunt for a good hummus recipe. I always have sesame oil around because I use it for so many things. That's why the recipe had so much appeal. I don't want to buy tahini for something I only make occasionally. I reduced the amounts to include just one can of chickpeas. Perfect for our gyros and pita! Rave reviews from all diners! Left out cilantro based on personal preference.
Excellent recipe! I also left out the cilantro just because I didn't have any on hand. It would probably be really good with it included though. Next time I'll make sure to add it in. The cayenne gives it a nice kick.
I made one third of this recipe, because I had one 19 ounce can of chick peas. Oh man, the garlic was strong! Next time I will absolutely cut down on the garlic. And, I may use all olive oil because I like it more than sesame oil (and it would only be a tsp of sesame oil that I would be using anyways). Thanks for the recipe I'm glad I tried it!
This is really good. It was my first attempt at hummus. Super easy - other than shelling all those chickpeas!! The cayenne pepper added a nice little kick!
