Delicious! I was looking for a lower fat hummous and this really fit the bill. I only used a tablespoon of neufchatel and I used real garlic and added a teaspoon of cumin. Thanks for recommending this recipe, will make often!

Wow, I ate it all by myself! I used a lime instead of lemon, loved the fresh citrus flavor! Really different with the cream cheese. Loved it! Thanks Mirj!

Great recipe, I am going to experiment with added spices like cumin, coriander, nutmeg, chili powder, and/or even a dash of ginger or curry for a little spicier taste.

My new absolutely favourite hummous recipe! I have never made hummous without tahini before so I was curious to try this recipe. I am just so excited by how quick and easy this was to make. It’s a totally hassle-free recipe! And the ingredients are ones that I always have on hand. Just loved it. It was also my first time using garlic granules, which I’ll certainly use again when I’m not feeling like putting in much effort or when I’ve run out of fresh garlic. But if I’ve got the energy to use fresh garlic, that’s what I’ll be doing. The only changes I’ll make next time will be to double the recipe and to increase the amount of garlic. Very lemony and a great texture. I used Neufchatel cheese. I’m also going to experiment with using other white cheeses. Thank you, Mirj, for sharing this gem of a recipe. No more bought hummous for me ever again!
