Passed down from the girls at the gym. I LOVE this with carrots or homemade pita chips. "Cook Time" is actually chill time. Hope you like it!

As it was (with just a sprinkling of salt and pepper) this hummus was rather bland, even after allowing it to meld overnight. After I was more liberal with the salt and added about a tbs of hot sauce for just a bit of a wakeup, it was tasty. Not sure I'll make it again, but it's nice to have such a healthy, protein-filled hummus recipe around. Thanks for posting!

Great Stuff! I added a bit of Pico De Gallo powder to add a little kick. I don't think I will buy hummus again. This is so much better

Really good - love the change from regular hummus. It took longer to clean the food processor than it did to make this dip...well worth the effort! Thanks AnnieLynn, I'll be serving with veggies & chips for a party.
