Mmm! I love hummus and this is a super yummy version. :) I followed it exactly but added a dash of tabasco sauce to it. I dipped baby carrots into it. Addictive! Thanks for sharing!

Very easy and very good too! I can't find tahini anywhere so this worked great...didn't even miss it! I added California Garlic salt (garlic salt + parsley) instead of salt and pepper, about 1/2 tsp of dill, and 1/2 tsp cilantro. Turned out yummy! I will never buy hummus again since this tastes just like the expensive store bought stuff for much much less! Thanks!

An excellent and easy way to prepare hummus, without tahini! I love being able to make a quick dip for a snack, and tahini is one of those ingredients you don't typically tend to have. This recipe is just as good, and whips up quickly. Also nice to be able to adjust the mashing consistency to your won preference- I find storebought hummus often too smooth. Thanks for sharing! :)
