Nice recipe. I've always looked for the perfect hummus recipe. I've tried this one and it has the perfect consistency. Thanks for sharing this one.

I'm visiting my parents and I never made hummus here, I'm sure they'll enjoy, al least I do!

I heart hummus. Does anyone know anyone who does not like hummus? I think an appreciation thread needs to be started! It's the best thing ever. Often make it for myself but always without a recipe so will give this one a go.

I like roasted red pepper hummus. Adding roasted red peps to any hummus recipe makes it tastier!

I make Sun-dried tomato hummus adding sun-dried tomato pesto from Trader Joe's... is delicious!



Hummus is much better than mayonnaise or veganaise as a spread for sandwiches and wraps because it adds fiber in addition to other nutrients.

I made this today, it had a nice consistancy but way to much garlic for me. I used 4 cloves as suggested, but maybe the cloves I had were larger or something, next time I would only use 2 maximum.

For a quick meal, thin this out with water slightly and serve with spaghetti. Yummy!

I like to add cumin, paprika and green olives. Yum!

I was the family chef before I became a vegan. Now I'm hoping that I will still be the family chef, while bridging the gap between my omnivore family, and my vegan recipes: http://crashtestvegetarian.com

Q. Why can't miserable gits taste this stuff?

A. Because they have no sense of 'hoom-uhs'.

I use watered-down hummus for salad dressing sometimes.

I found if I use curry in it, it tastes just like egg salad when chopped celery, green peppers and diced onions are added.

Don't let the perfect be the enemy of the good

Lots of garlic, cumin, and my secret ingredient is sriracha.

Groan...

It was too sour for me, I reduced lemon juice to 2 tbsp and upped the tahini to 1/4 cup.

Oh and I tossed in a couple jalepeno peppers, now you're talking.

Thanks for posting the recipe.

A friend of mine from at my old job got me hooked on this stuff. It is the bomb and now I know how to make it. Also can make it a heck of a lot cheaper than buying it at the store.

 

Something I used to do when eating this was I liked eating this with crackers. I probably won't be able to do this as much now seeing as I'm going vegan. But I'll find something good to use this as a dip still.
