    Used different ingredients. a big hit! Note: I liked it even better with 1/2 teaspoon of lemon juice added.  -  29 Sep 2008


    This hummus was pretty good, but it was sort of bland. It was a lot better after adding paprika, a few drops of chilli oil, and some sesame seeds.  -  29 Sep 2008


    Used different ingredients. I made two variations on this recipe. I left out the cumin and added fresh ground pepper. To one batch I added sun-dried tomatoes and a little crushed chillies to taste. That was REALLY yummy. To the other batch I added chilli paste, minced ginger, soy sauce to taste. The chilli paste gives it a real kick. I'm thinking kalamata olives and artichokes may work, too. Brilliant recipe.  -  29 Sep 2008
