My favorite hummus! After making this, I quit buying hummus from the store.
Delicious! It tastes better than store-bought.
absolutely womderful! i added a little more chickpea juice and garlic 👍
The taste of tahini was a bit too strong, but apart from that, I think it turned out quite ok :)

Great but my Tahini was a bit too spicy for my taste

Just like grandma used to make it!

it's okay with veggies, better with crackers...just not the best hummus I've ever had.

Super easy, super good!

Great! Used less lemon

Less tahini and more lemon juice made it tastier. I subbed in a can of Great Northern beans for one can of garbanzo beans and also some water for some of the olive oil.

Sooo good. Used it with another dish: roasted veggies and hummus wraps. My friends loved it. Really simple and tasty!

This turned out perfect I added red tahini instead and some paprika and sage for a little more spice and it was lovely
