This is a family recipe, and it's really easy to make. I sometimes like to increase the amount of garlic.

Altered ingredient amounts. Really good. To make it better, use chickpeas that you've cooked at home. I use 2 cloves of garlic. By the way, this is the classic "five-point" recipe for hummus. Chickpeas, garlic, lemon juice, tahini, and olive oil. Anything else is a variation thereof. - 29 Sep 2008

Altered ingredient amounts. Home-made hummus is the only way to go! I suggest adding the lemon gradually, to taste, because I used the full amount the first time and it was too lemony for me. I also added more garlic and didn't add the oil or salt since there's already so much sodium in the canned chick peas. Sometimes I add some marinated artichoke hearts to mix for some extra kick. And tahini is a must; peanut butter is no substitute. - 29 Sep 2008

This is a really good basic houmus recipe. I used two cloves of garlic, but I think it could have used a little more. I also used a whole lemon and I prefer more of a tang. If you want to add more flavour to this classic recipe, you could try ground cumin, smoked paprika or sumac. This recipe is authentic and delicious as is though. - 27 Feb 2013
