As Pets said, I thought the lemon was a bit too much, but my dh--the hummus junkie--said that it was fabulous, and that the lemon just enhanced the flavor even more. I followed the steps exactly, passing the garbanzos through a food mill first, and then processing in the food processor....the resulting product was smooth, creamy and delicious! Thanks Evelyn! :)

No, this one did not work for me. At time of writing this review the humus calls for the juice of three lemons. I thought that was a lot and started jucing one lemon and adding that gradually, I stopped at about 5 tablespoons and still had approx 2 tablespoons of juice left, so I wonder or that amount is right? Also the olive oil is not in the list of ingredients but shows up in the steps. Evelyn you know I normally first try to contact the chef when I have questions about a recipe, I know you are on holiday for another few weeks, but I know you will give me feedback when you are back.

This was excellent with fresh bread (sunflower seeds bread)! We had a dinner of leftovers and I decided to use my half tin garbanzos for this recipe. I never prepared hummus and my family was enthusiastic. At the end they ate all leftovers and a lot of bread as well with your great hummus!
Thanks a lot again for your recipes!

I made half this recipe and it turned out great. Lemony and garlicky! Served this with pita bread, carrots and cucumbers. Made for ZWT 6.

This was great and a real treat for my guest. Served with Indian Garlic Naan, which were wonderful together.

Very easy to make and I really enjoyed the lemon flavour. I didn't really measure the ingredients, I just put it all in the processor, and processed away & then tasted it and added a bit more lemon & salt and a little extra garlic (just because we love garlic). Evelyn - Thanks for the great, quick & easy recipe.

I used the juice of 1 lemon, a very juicy oneand it was enough. added a bit more cayenne. I did not serve it in the taditional way with Olive oil over it but just in a bowl with strips of hot crispy pita bread - enjoyed by all For two guests it was the first time they had tasted Hummus but are now adicted. Thanks Evelyn for a very good recipe

this recipe was not difficult to make but i used sesame oil instead of proper tahini as i couldn't find any. the problem with that was all i could smell and taste in the hummus was the sesame oil and it was awful, perhaps if i had the tahini oil it would have made a difference but isn't tahini oil sort of a sesame oil??
