    v.czaska's Note:

    My husband(who is a hummus fanatic) and I worked very hard to come up with the perfect hummus to suit our tastes...not too lemony and the tahini(sesame paste) is not overpowering. Being Armenian, hummus was a staple in my home growing up. Even people who aren't too keen on hummos have converted after tasting this!

      I absolutely love this recipe! I've been making this recipe consistently for the past couple of months and have completely stopped buying hummus from the grocery store. I tend to make just two minor revisions to this recipe: I cut the garlic in half and drizzle two TEASPOONS of olive oil over the finished product rather than two tablespoons.

      This is really good, and so easy. All of the flavors come through without any one overpowering the others. I am one of those who isn't wild for hummus, especially store bought, but liked this a lot. Served with pita chips. Made for Spring 2008 PAC.
