Fabulous! I will never buy ready-made hummus again. This couldn't be easier - threw all the ingredients in the food processor, added a little fluid from the drained chick peas and presto - wonderful. I used jarred roasted red peppers rather than roasting my own.

Delicious! I didn't have tahini on hand, so I subbed about 1/3 tablespoon of sesame seed oil and 1/3 cup of plain yogurt. I also used the liquid from the roasted red peppers I used instead of reserved oil from chick peas. I also added a bit more salt and garlic.

I took out the tahini altogether and added 1/4 cup nonfat plain yogurt to keep the creamy texture. I roasted half of a leftover red pepper, subbed lime juice for the lemon, added approx. 1/8 tsp red pepper flakes instead of cayenne, left out the coriander but added about 1/2 tsp of paprika. The recipe turned out to be my best version of hummus yet!

Loved it. I'm always on the look-out for low-fat hummus recipes; this one was as good as I've found. I increased the garlic and lemon juice, and kept the cayenne to 1/4 tsp. (just to be safe!) and it was extremely yummy. This is a keeper!

Great stuff! I made mine a bit to runny, but that's my fault for adding a little too much of the chickpea "juice". Will make this again!

Awesome recipe! I made this for a pot luck and everybody loved it (even the kids) - definitely the best hummus recipe I've tried yet. The only change I made was replacing the cayenne with yellow curry powder.

This recipe was very tasty and a great low fat alternative to the traditional hummus recipes out there that have so much olive oil. I do feel that the recipe features too much cumin and coriander which masks the taste of the tahini and red pepper, so next time I'm going to cut back on them. Thanks so much for posting!

We enjoyed this recipe but thought the spices were overdone. Next time I will cut all the spices in half next time so we can actually get some of the flavor from the roasted red pepper, chick peas and tahini...

What a simple, straight forward recipe this is and what a great result! I followed your recipe except for adding in 2 teaspoons more lemon juice and another garlic clove. I used the 1/2 teaspoon of cayenne and we reckoned it was perfect.

Oh my gosh, this recipe is fabulous! I've made it several times and I absolutely love it. It's easy, quick and ohhhh so yummy. I used the 1/2 t of cayenne and I think that it is perfect--just a hint of hot.
