  1. My DH, the self proclaimed hummus experty, gave this 5 stars...and I liked it too. I made only a couple of adjustments for our taste. I used a can and a half of the chickpeas, a couple of tablespoons more oil and 3 large chipotle peppers in adobo, omitting the coriander and cayenne. This is now be my default hummus recipe from this day forward, and I know I will be able to work out many different variations from this "mother" recipe.
  2. Tastes great with crackers or as a spread. Very good!
  3. Very good! We love hummus, and this one is similar to the Mediterranean hummus that we like at Trader Joe's. I didn't add as much cumin, maybe 1 1/2 teaspoons. I didn't have the coriander on hand, but didn't miss it. I used red pepper sauce, a couple of drops because I couldn't find my red pepper anywhere! Thanks for a great recipe!
  4. MARVELOUS!!!! even my husband loves it and asks for fresh veggies now to dip in it!!
  5. Great dip. A real party pleaser.


I love trying different kinds of food, playing with flavours. I inherited it from my dad. We used to spend every Sunday, cooking something new. It was like a special day for us to spend time together. Apart from cooking, I also love travelling. My favourite places are Jamaica, and Morocco. Nothing like sitting by the side of the road somewhere, eating Jerk Chicken or a Moroccan Sandwich!
