    I didn't have tahini, so I used a glop of peanut butter instead. Two cloves of garlic were added along with lemon instead of lime juice. Totally nummers and easy-peasy!  -  24 Aug 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I added a little salt and pepper and it was delicious!  -  18 May 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This recipe is very, very good as is! This was my first time making my own hummus and really loved it. I will make this again definitely. I will follow the suggestions of the cook related to test the recipe with different canned chickpeas and different amounts of tahini to see the outcomes. I really recommend it!  -  10 Apr 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
