    FROM THE RECIPE MAKER: You may also substitute unmarinaded sliced avocados in the place of cucumbers when in a bind or for a different twist. Messy cook's motto: Recipes are a guideline to discovering what you like best. So learn, practice, experiment, and don't be afraid to make a mess. Happy Cooking!  -  24 Apr 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Hummus was the only thing that I made, I didn't mean to revamp the recipe, but the main ingredient is so expensive at 8.00 a jar, so I used already made garlic hummus. I added it to the food processor along with 1 full bunch of cilantro and about 1/4 teaspoon chipole powder and 1/2 teaspoon onion powder and a pinch of salt and mixed. It was so simple and tasted just like Panera's . My son loves it, saids it taste better!  -  22 Oct 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Found the hummus to be a far too salty. Had to add tahini, oil, lemon juice to cut it. I like the idea, though.  -  26 Jun 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
