I can't believe I haven't rated this yet. I made this last year for a party and it was a big hit. Last night I had a craving for it and whipped up a batch. I used half the amount of oil and made up the difference with the liquid from the chick peas. I also added a tablespoon of lemon juice. I had roasted some garlic earlier and used that instead of raw garlic. It was so good, I had trouble stopping myself from eating it all right then. I ended up having a good sized dollop of it on top of some brown rice for supper. Yum.

so....I wanted to make something different tonight....and knew I had a bag of edamame in the freezer, so searched recipes for it....I used the IDEA from this recipe....what I came up with was a bit different...and soooo good. first, I boiled the edamame, then put it in my food processor with a can of drained spinach and 3 cloves of garlic, added EVOO, a splash of lemon juice, a pinch of salt, and some green chile hot sauce I had in the spice rack....it was sooo good!! I spreaded that mixture on mine and hubby's plates....then topped it with some tuna mixed with fire roasted tomatoes, chopped celery, and a BIT of miracle whip.....WOW was it GOOOOOOD!!!! maybe I'll write it out seperately on this site!!! :)

This was delicious and super easy to make! I added an avocado to it and it gave it a great creamier taste.

I subbbed the tahini for some peanut butter and sesame oil. This was pretty good, I've never had hummus before so I can't compare it to anything, but I think it'd be great on a veggie sandwich or falafel. Thanks for sharing!

I made this for the first time last night to take to a party. My hubby and I loved it, the party goers loved it--even the hosts' three-year old loved it! I don't think we'll be buying any more hummus from the store. I made it as written, but thawed the spinach first in the microwave before I added it to the food processor.

Beautiful color, wonderful flavor and so easy to make. The only changes I made were to reduce the amount of red pepper flakes (about 1 tsp, I think) and I added the juice of 1 lemon. I won't do that again, as there was a touch of bitterness to the aftertaste, taken away with a sprinkle of nutmeg, but still... Excellent recipe. I will make it again!

Awesome! I'm a big fan of hummus, and made this for our pre-Thanksgiving dinner with friends (in order to test it out for Thanksgiving dinner later in the week!) It was a huge hit! I used all 6 cloves of garlic (albeit they weren't huge cloves), a 15 oz can of garbanzos, 1 tsp red pepper flakes (made it nice and warm, but not HOT), only 1 tsp of kosher salt, and I didn't measure the olive oil, but simply poured while the food processor was running until I had a nice smooshy texture. Delicious, thank you!

I've tried 3 or 4 homemade hummus recipes in the past and was never really satisfied. This recipe hit the spot though. YUM. I used 4 cloves of garlic, a 16oz can of garbanzo beans (it's what was in the pantry), and 1/4 cup of EVOO.

I only used 1/2 of the hot pepper; but all of the garlic! This made great sandwiches with cucumbers and carrots.
