      Absolutely delicious! This is the first time I am making hummus and also the first time I am cooking chick peas. I thought I had the peas soft enough but they weren't and so I have a grainy textured hummus. Ichose this recipe as it uses dried beans. This is a very economical dish and definitely a keeper.

      Extremely yummy! I won't be able to go back to store-bought hummus anymore. I'd love to lighten up this recipe, but I can't see how ... we'll just use it sparingly, and enjoy it thoroughly when we have it. I used canned garbanzo beans (Trader Joe's) and it was absolutely delicious, so I have to assume it didn't hurt the flavor much to go with canned.
