"A neighbor shared this recipe at a party...it is adapted from Mediterraneo in Hermosa Beach. It always draws rave reviews. It is on the spicy side after a couple of bites."

    Good! I live and breathe hummus. No exaggerations.

    Very good bean dip. I made for a food day at work and everyone liked it.

    This was a great alternative to regular hummus, and it tastes really great, too! I made this exactly as posted, using about 1 cup of water. Be prepared, though, because this makes a lot! I enjoyed this curled up in front of the T.V. with a bag of white corn tortilla chips, as well as some crudite. Yum! Thanks for sharing. Made for Fall PAC 2011.

RECIPE SUBMITTED BY

I live just outside Iowa City, Iowa... home of the University of Iowa (Go Hawkeyes!). In my former life, I was a Marketing Manager for Ladies' Home Journal magazine, but am now a stay-at-home mom. My husband and I have been married?15 years and have a 12-yr old son, as well as 5-yr old twin boys!!! ?We all love to be in the kitchen! While I tend to rely on recipes, my husband is more of a throw-it-together/experimental kind of cook (it usually turns out great!). I make a weekly menu, but it's never the same. Cookbooks and recipes are a passion, so I always have something new on the menu. That's why I love Food.com so much!
