    I served this hummus with both a veggie tray and tortilla chips at a party and it was a huge hit! I followed the directions as written except I added a few dashes of cayenne and a few pickled jalapeno slices to make it a bit spicier. I will definitely be making this recipe again. Thanks!

    This hummus has great flavor, I love the characteristic flavor the tahini gives it. I cut back on the salt and doubled the lemon (and think lime would be a great sub for the lemon as well). Next time I will leave the water out to make it thicker. Thanks, flower!

    Yummy deliciousness! I used as a spread on a sandwich with avocado and tomatoes, and of course for dipping breads and veggies.

    I am a huge hummus fan and never thought I'd like black bean hummus better than regular...but I so do! This is awesome! Made it with 1/3 c. peanut butter only because I was out of tahini, added 1/2 t. of cayenne pepper and a dash of hot sauce. This is awesome...and you can never go wrong adapting a Silver Palate recipe, right? :-) Thanks so much for posting!!!

    Enjoyed this so much! I had large garlic cloves & still used 4 of them & made a great-tasting hummus that was devoured by a small group I host each month! I'd set out wedges of pita bread, but most were satisfied to use it as a dip for chips & veggies! Certainly want to keep this recipe around!
