    Hubby and I both loved it! I made a half recipe and we lunched on this as a dip for mini-poppadums (how's that for fusion cuisine?). I used about 1/2 tsp salt pureed in with everything else and I think it was about the right amount for us. Lots of flavor and quickly prepared (takes longer to wash, dry and put away the food processor afterward than to prepare the hummus). Thanks for posting!

    I enjoyed this for lunch today with tortilla chips. Nice flavor, easy and quick to make! I halved the recipe and it still made a good 2 cups!Thanks Julie!

    I loved this hummus! I made 1/2 the amount and used 1/4 C. of the olive oil, rather than the 1/2 Cup, and I mixed the salt and cayenne right into the blend, rather than garnish. I had this for lunch the past few days, on pita with the suggested lettuce, tomato and cucumber and it was wonderful. Thanks so much for the recipe Julie, I loved it :)
