I love this recipe, but use a little less lemon juice.

Outstanding recipe!!, Had to search for dried garbanzos. Found from Palouse Farms out of WA from Amazon. As a short cut I use the pressure cooker w' 1 cup beans to 3 cups water for 1 hour.<br/>Also ordered tahini from Amazon. to me it tastes like peanut butter, I would have no hesitation in substituting it in the recipe.

I have one word for this recipe - WOW!!!!

This is absolutely the bes hummous I have *ever* made (or tasted for that matter) - and I have been trying (and buying) for years! This is truly the Holy Grail of hummous - I can taste everything: the garlic, the lemon, the tahini, the cumin - it's just superb!

I actually only used canned (organic) chickpeas for this and it wass till wonderful - next time I am definitely going to go the extra mile and buy some really good chickpeas and do it the proper way.

Thank you amanda I b - you made a hummous lover very, very happy!

Well, all I had was canned garbanzos so I used 'em and just decreased the salt. NOT a problem! Picked a large Meyer lemon off the tree, had about 1/4c Tahini left over in the fridge & used it all roasted 2 full heads of garlic (drizzled w/olive oil, salt & pepper). Pretty much eyeballed everything else and YEAH - good stuff! Nice & creamy texture - liked the sweet paprika, also tried it with smoked paprika & liked that even better. Thanks for the recipe!

WOW! I had people who didn't like humus, liking humus thanks to this recipe! Awesome recipe. The only thing I changed is that I used roasted garlic (whole bulb) and fresh squeezed lemon juice. When I serve it, I sprinkle some EVOO, paprika AND Cholula Hot Sauce on it! I have been making fresh froms scratch pita bread and Naan (as well as baking some chips out of them). BIG hit!

I finally found the best Hummus recipe ever!! Like the chef said though, DO NOT use canned beans! For that extra garlic kick, I added the whole bulb instead of the called for 4. I also love the fact that I can make so much of this for under $2 (provided you already have the tahini).
