Good recipe. I made 2 batches, one with curry and one without (sorta had to, because what do you with half a can of chickpeas). Vastly prefer the batch without the curry. I also followed the previous reviewers advice to limit water. Perfect texture. Read More

I agree with some others; this isn't exactly hummus. However, I gave it a go because I really liked the idea of using blacks bean and yogurt. I found the consistency somewhat waning, and the yogurt taste distracting. I think I will try this again for sure because I love the idea of it, but I'll probably play around with the olive oil (i.e add much more and not use yogurt). Read More

Instead of using curry I substituted 1 tsp of cumin. I also added more garlic and lemon for a stronger flavor. It was one of the best hummus recipes I've ever tried! Read More

I wouldn't quite call this hummus exactly but it certainly is delicious! I skipped the curry powder and water doubled the garlic and added a bit more lemon juice than the original recipe called for. Great with pita bread tortilla chips Ritz crackers or rolled up in a tortilla with veggies as a southwestern wrap! Read More

Oh my this is my new favorite bean dip/spread/hummus!! Absolutely wonderful! The only change I made was to leave out the olive oil use less water double the garlic and left out the curry. My daughter loved it as well and it made a great dip for a healthy evening snack with lowfat pretzels. We will try it on bread for sandwiches tomorrow. We WILL be making this one often!! Simple inexpensive healthy and delicious! A definite winner in my book! Read More

We used full cans of both black beans and chickpeas so we doubled everything else. I made this for my family and everyone loved it! Read More

I made this last night for a late evening snack and followed it to the letter. My husband and I loved it! DH suggested it would be good as a sandwich spread when making wraps. I think I know what I'm doing with the leftovers! Read More

I have already made this several times! I love it and it had tons of flavor for me! Make sure you add fresh garlic and add more or less of the ingredients to suit your taste! It's so easy and so delicious! My good friend said it was the best hummus she has ever had! Enjoy! Read More
