I made this using Peanut Wonder PB (100 cals, 2.5 g fat per 2 tbsp - www.peanutwonder.com or buy at Trader Joe's) in place of tahini. I also used a 19 oz can, but that made no difference. It came out more lemony and less garlicky than *I* personally prefer. I like my dips with a little more spice, so I added a few dashes paprika/cayenne. Overall, the family enjoyed the dip with my recipe for pita chips and with carrots. I even used some of the leftovers and mashed with canned tuna and came up with a new recipe! I'm posting it today! A tuna melt! You're recipe inspired me!! THANK YOU!

Excellent low-fat alternative. I added more lemon and garlic but still felt it needed a bit more spice. So like another suggestion, I added paprika, sea salt and some cayenne pepper and that did the trick. I will most definitely make this again!

I used the peanut butter alternative and couldn't believe how good and easy this was!I think I added a bit more lemon to suit my taste.

This is my first time making hummus and this is amazing! I used 2 cloves of garlic (perfect if you LOVE garlic) and added a bit of paprika and black pepper for some heat. I made this as a snack for later on in the day and I wish time would pass by quicker so I can have it all! This is creamy and delicious. I think the only thing I'd probably do differently next time is make twice as much :) Thank you!

Really liked this recipe. I am definitely going to make it again, but I am going to try fresh garbanzo beans and I bet it will be even better. I did add just a tad of EVOO.

I thought that this was really good hummus. I used 3 teaspoons of tahini to cut down on the fat a little bit more, and it was still great. I added a little bit more garlic in mine (only because I LOVE garlicky hummus). This was great hummus, and I will definately make it again!!!

I love this hummus!!! I made it with tahini, exactly as the recipe reads and it is fantastic! Very lemony flavour with a little garlic. I froze it in an airtight container, then defrosted it all night and all day in the fridge. Took it out of the fridge and left it on the counter for about an hour and before serving. It was great! Thanks!

This was tasty, I used peanut butter but next time I am trying tahini, so that it tastes more like I expect hummus to taste. I doubled the garlic and cumin. I would recommend not salting heavily until after tasting, the brine is quite salty already.
