    Kiwi Kathy's Note:

    Simply the best, easiest recipe ever. Delicious and makes enough to feed 4 adults and still have some left over for lunch the next day. Preferably make a day prior to being needed as flavour develops on keeping.

      Tasty! I liked the lemony tang. I added extra garlic and paprika plua a dash of cayenne and cumin. Used canned garbanzo beans rather that dried ones and it only took a few minutes to prepare! Thanks, KK! Made for Fall PAC 2012

      A good basic recipe which could be built upon. Add a couple cloves garlic, a dash of cumin and cayenne. Remember, my consultations are always free...and you can trust me. Made for A-NZ#67 recipe swap.

      I love hummus and like trying different recipes, this recipe reminded me of my Aunts recipe, she loves lots of lemon in it. I used organic can chickpeas and added two lemons . To serve I spread the hummus on some home made focaccia and it tasted yummy. Thank you so much for posting your recipe Kiwi Kathy
