a simple, straightforward recipe for yummy hummus! when i served it, i sprinkled paprika and toasted pine nuts on top. you can also drizzle a good extra-virgin olive oil over it. UPDATE: this recipe is so yummy -- and super easy. i've always added oil or water to thin out the hummus, never the chick pea water ("reserve water") & this is by all means my now preferred method. thanks! :)

I like hummus so was pleased to find this recipe. If anything it is much nicer than the commercially made hummus. I found it very easy to make. I didn't put it in the processor, just mashed it up and added the other ingredients. It made a coarser texture but I wasn't using it as a spread or dip, I used it with salad as a main dish.

This was the first time I've tasted hummus, let alone make it, and I was very thrilled with the results. I used garlic paste instead of a clove, so I'm not sure if I used the right amount. The lemon juice is also very dominant. This makes a really nice spread for my sandwiches.

I also used about 3/4 cup of dried chickpeas and did a quick soak, then boiled them for 40 minutes. Every time I make my hummus with dried chickpeas, it always comes out better. This is a really tasty recipe. I also roasted my garlic and added 4 extra cloves.

This is now one of the favorite snacks in the house! It's so easy to make, and extremely popular. I just made it for the second time tonight, doubling the batch, and it still disappeared! (Of course, I definitely helped make that happen :D)

This is an excellent hummus recipe! I used reserved chickpea water to get the right thickness and also added a dash of cayenne pepper for some additional kick!

Great recipe. Hummus is such a simple and healthy recipe to prepare, it is always great to have some fresh on hand for any occasion. I made as directed, however instead of using the leftover liquid from the chickpea can, I added olive oil to thin. I use as a spread on sandwiches or a dip for black bean tortilla chips. Thank you, Gingerbee!

This is a recipe I will make again. I used my blender to mix it and it did end up a bit thick so I will follow the other recommendations to thin it just a bit with something. It had a mild flavor, which my kids like. I used 1/4 teaspoon dried garlic instead of the clove, but otherwise followed the directions. We ate it with Aldi's Pita Chips. It made enough for myself and 5 of my children.
