I belong to a food coop and have an abundance of eggplant. Ergo: this recipe. I added a little more salt and some pepper. I roasted a whole head of garlic with the eggplant and squeezed that in at the finish. I also added one large spoonfull of tahini and the juice of half a lemon and it was MARVELOUS! Read More

This hummus was easy to make and came out with a somewhat decent texture. I liked that it's quick to make and that the ingredients are affordable. However the hummus was very bland. After making it according to instructions I had to doctor the recipe up quite a bit to make it enjoyable. This might be a good base but I would not serve it as-is. I give it two stars for affordability accessibility nutritional value and texture. It severely lacks in flavor. Read More

The eggplant in this helps to make this a very creamy dip. However it is not really a hummus. It was more like an eggplant dip with some garbanzo. It is pretty bland and tasteless as is. It needs tahini lemon cumin and a dash of cayenne pepper. I used 1/2 of a large eggplant and did not include the skin. I was worried about it not blending smooth enough. It was much better after the addition of the other ingredients. Read More

This was sooo delicious. I ate spoonfuls of it right out of the food processor. Even my 15 month old son gobbled it up. I ran out of olive oil so I just used regular canola oil but I didn't change anything else. It was great thanks. Read More

Yummy. A little chewy. Not really worth the effort of the eggplant. Needed tahini lemon juice and lots of garlic. Read More

Used dried beans instead of canned. Needed to add water as consistency was too thick. Agree w/ other review - this was too bland. Added more salt and fresh ground black pepper. Will probably add cayanne pepper to give it a little kick as well. Read More
