    My family loves this spicy hummus. This recipe makes three times the amount in the supermarket containers for about the same price as one.

    This recipe is great. All measurements work well. I will definitely use it again. Thank you  -  21 Jan 2017


    I subbed peanut butter for the tahini, as it was what I had on hand. (Any nut butter would work.) 8 is too many cloves of garlic - cut it in half and you'll still have plenty. I sauteed my garlic in olive oil before adding it to the food processor with the rest of ingredients. Took care of that raw garlic unpleasantness. I also had to add extra oil and lemon juice; it was dry without. Very good final product!  -  23 Aug 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I thought this hummus was almost perfect. I followed the recipe exactly but thought the garlic flavor was a little overwhelming and drowned out the other flavors. I would reduce to 4 cloves of garlic so the flavors balance a little better. Mixing the garbonzo beans can be a bit challenging.  -  08 May 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
