    Have made it several times and it has always turned out delicious!

    Great experience first time making hummus. I didn’t add salt throughout. I followed the tahini recipe and used dried chickpeas. They ended up soaking for 13ish hours, so they didn’t take long to cook, following the visual directions. I am interested in trying different amounts of tahini and adding different spices. It’s great to know the foundation is solid, and I really appreciate how thoroughly explained this recipe is. I am curious about the bright color in the photo and how I can achieve that, maybe going the canned route.

    Nope. Too much tahini. Missing something...maybe cumin?! Disappointed.

    It was delicious, I microwaved the chickpeas with whole garlic cloves for 10 minutes before I separated the liquid. It makes the hummus extra creamy.

    The taste of tahini was a bit too strong, but apart from that, I think it turned out quite ok :)
