I have always found hummus way too bland until I tried this! Serve with chips, pita chips or cut vegetables.

This is the best hummus ever---actually I have never liked traditional hummus before. This version is very healthy/low-fat with no olive oil. I often use a fresh roasted red pepper instead of those in a jar. I first grill the red pepper and blacken the skin (you can also do that under the broiler) then peel off all the blackened skin and remove seed then throw the pepper in the food processor with the rest of the ingredients. UPDATE - Made this even better...delete the parsley and the salt and add a large clove of garlic and about a dozen kalamata olives (pitted of course!) and about a tbsp. of the brine that the olives come in! EVEN MORE FABULOUS and a good way to get healthy red peppers beans and olives all in one dish! Read More

I don't know what I did wrong but this definitely needed olive oil and tahini. Mine was way too thick & hot. I'll stick to buying my hummus from now on. Read More

I was super surprised by this! Beautiful flavor combo with the perfect amount of heat. I added 1 clove of garlic because I adore garlic. I also made mine in the blender and needed to add a little liquid to get it moving. I added 3 TBS of water and 2 TBS of olive oil. It was beautiful and smooth and made a very generous amount of hummus. Thanks for a fantastic 5 star recipe! I also tossed with hot pasta for a delicious entree! Read More

Very tasty; thank you for posting. The only tweaking was to add a tablespoon of tahini (from grounds sesame seeds) garlic to taste and to reduce the lemon to two tablespoons. The result simply DELICIOUS! Read More

Wow! I love hummus and have eaten a lot of it...but this has to be one of the best that I have not only eaten but made as well. And I must admit it was my first attempt at making hummus. I decided to try three varieties and this would be my favorite. Highly recommend. Read More

Delicious and so simple to make! To decrease the amount of fat I used reduced fat feta cheese and halved the amount. I also omitted the fresh parsley because I didn't have any. With all these changes it was still very tasty. Thanks Valerie this is a keeper! Read More
