    ms_bold's Note:

    This recipe was printed in the New York Times several years ago. I often use it for my own lunch with some fresh veggies. Flavors are best a room temp, but dip must be stored (long-term) in the fridge. Prep time does not include additional time for flavors to blend.

      Made this because I don't like the chickpeas available at the nearest grocery store and we needed some hummus for lunches throughout the week. This was quick and simple. Next time I'll up the seasonings a bit and add a little dash of salt. I did add a bit of cumin but tried to stay on the safe side as I usually tend to overdo it. Next time I will also add roasted garlic, just for the added flavour. The texture is absolutely gorgeous though!

      Popped upstairs and made this this afternoon for DH for when he came home from work. Went with the cumin option, used a can of great northern white beans,drained but not rinsed,and added a small handful of fresh parsley, and a tablespoon or so of lemon juice. I was already blending when I remembered the garlic, so I used garlic powder instead. I used my stick blender and it all came together really well, thick creamy and yummy. Served it with rice crackers. Thanks for the recipe, I'll make this again!

      I was excited about this recipe when I read it, and served it for a wedding shower tea. I thought it was fair at best. It had kind of a weird slimy texture, the color was unappealing (I tried to pretty it up with paprika, etc.) I tried adding lemon which helped some, and I used the rosemary option for the herbs. No one really ate it. I think hummus is much better.
