It was decent -- but lacking. I added quadruple the garlic, doubled the olive oil and tahini, and put a bit of fresh cilantro in. Damn that was some delicious hummus. When it was done, I still wanted more -- added a bit of dried thyme and marjoram and salt. Then it was too good to resist.

just like the all the other reviewers, i have to say this tasted very authentic. It reminded me of the hummus served in restaurnts in Israel. the only difference I made was use more olive oil and lemon juice, and less water from the chickpea cans. thanks for a great hummus recipe.

I made this tonight and was very pleased with it. I'm not sure if mylemon was too small but it needed more liquid so I added extra olive oil to get the right consistancy. I also added some extra garlic because I like mine garlicky. I served it with olive oil and Mirj's recipe for Za'tar

Great recipe. I used just a bit more garlic and lemon juice (because I drained the beans to well). I sprinkled a little za'atar on top along with the olive oil. This tasted just like the hummus my Arab friends use to make. Very authentic taste to your recipe. Thanks LeeAnn

This was so quick & easy to make - a very traditional tasting hummus. Next time I would halve the recipe as it makes quite A LOT!
