    Big Tastebuds, Tiny Kitchen's Note:

    I was terrified the first couple of times I tried to make hummus -- my significant other had spent considerable time in Israel/Palestine and swore that no hummus he had had outside of the region had ever tasted as good. This recipe, while it certainly does not come close, I'm sure, to that hummus abroad, satisfies him more than any store-bought variety. A note: fresh chickpeas would probably make it even better, but using organic canned chickpeas (there is a difference in taste, trust me -- also, since I add some of the liquid, its better not to be adding preservatives to your hummus) works just fine and makes the process painless and quick. Also, be warned -- this hummus has a tang/kick to it because of the garlic.

      This was alright. We love Hummus Amongus. I did use organic chickpeas and some of their liquid, organic tahini, organic garlic cloves, organic light tasting extra virgin olive oil, juice of organic lemon, & sea salt to taste. Made for, Come with us to Palestine!
