    Fantastic! I added about tsp of cumin, but made no other changes. Made a great lunch served on a whole wheat pita. Thanks for the recipe.  -  27 Jan 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I used a substitute for fava beans, lima beans. Basically, this is a hummus recipe, and I love hummus! This is very tasty!  -  09 Oct 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    great, simple weeknight quickie. I added cumin and coriander. Also, I was out of lemon juice so I used white wine vinegar, tasted great!  -  15 Dec 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
