    We travel to Turkey every year in April for a holiday. This recipe is as close as we can get to the hummus we enjoy each year during our stay there.

      This is not a Turkish food. You can call this as an Arabic food but not Turkish. Try to categorize foods better so that people will not be disappointed when they meet with real Turks.

      Can't believe that it's got 4.4 grams of saturated fat though? Delicious, agree with adding a half teaspoon of ground cumin and I also added a quarter of hot chilli powder for extra bite :-)

      Just made your hummus today and it came out great. I had no problem with it since I avoided the hassle and used 2 cans of beans. Popped everything in the food processor and voila. We love lemon garlic and tahini and found the ratio is perfect. The only thing I added was a half tsp of cumin, since we Armenians love cumin. Thanks for posting...will certainly make this again!
