Top Review by Mgnbos

I found this in Madhur Jaffrey's wonderful reference, 'World Vegetarian' (called Sara Aubufares' Whole Grain or "Bead" hummus") and served it today at a vegan luncheon All of the guests really enjoyed it made as written and I note that the flavors need a few hours to really come 'marry'. One guest even asked to take home the left overs! High praise indeed.
