    Used different ingredients. I wasn't totally wowed by this, but I still liked it. I used lemon juice instead of lime, but kept everything else the same. It went over well at a dinner party and it was really easy to make.  -  29 Sep 2008


    Something else. Adding cumin will greatly enhance the flavour of this hummus. For cooks who prefer a creamier texture, pour the chick peas into a large bowl of water, and rub them between your fingers. This peels them of their rough outer skin. Skim the floating skins from the water, and drain the peeled beans, proceed with recipe. Good stuff!  -  29 Sep 2008


    Altered ingredient amounts. THis recipe was very easy to make. I double it, but only used one red capsicumand the juice of one lemon. It was a little bland so I added 1/4 tsp of cumin and 1/4 tsp of cayenne pepper.I also added about 1/4 cup of fresh basil.  -  29 Sep 2008
