    gailanng's Note:

    Inspired by Zea's Hummus Appetizer Platter. Refrigerate time not included. (So good I strongly suggest doubling the hummus recipe since you'll already have on hand the toppings.) Note: I made a remarkable discovery. Adding lemon zest makes for extraordinary so I added it as an optional ingredient. Update: Substituting about half of the olive oil with chickpea juice makes for a fluffier hummus. Note: Since originally posting this recipe, I've come to realize that boiling your chickpeas for about 5 minutes makes for a better end product. Make sure you reserve the juice should you want a thinner hummus.

      Fantastic Hummus recipe -- the best I have tried to date! I doubled the recipe and served it with Savory Pita Chips (equally delicious). This will be my new "go to" recipe when I want a healthy, delicious appetizer or snack. Thanks for posting this great recipe. Made for Everyday is a Food Holiday tag, October, 2011.

      Wow, this really is a very tasty hummus! I liked it a lot. It had just the right amount of cumin and tanf from the yoghurt. Next time I would use a bit less garlic but thats just personal prefernce I guess. I reduced the oil a tad cause I like it when my hummus is a bit sturdier instead of super creamy. Its amazing how versatile this recipe is because of the various topping options. This time I used olives and cayenne pepper on top. Mmm! :)
      THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this keeper with us, Gail Ann!

      I really enjoyed this with chips. It's the first time my DS has tried hummuus and he couldn't get enough and has asked me to make more. I was stumped as I had no yogurt or sour cream so subbed mayonnaise. It worked just fine. Thanks! Made for PRMR game.
