This was so fantastic! I might not have added quite a 1/2 cup cilantro packed, but other than that I made it exactly as shown and my guests just raved about it. No one felt guilty about dipping away. Even non-cilantro lovers didn't notice at all and sucked it down before I could tell them what was in it! Thank you for a fabulous recipe we can feel good about serving. Read More

Very healthy recipe but I think it has far too much tahini. Next time I'll add the tahini tablespoon by tablespoon and taste until the amount is right for our preferences. I also prefer a bit more garlic. Read More

I didn't realize that soybeans came shelled or unshelled, so used 1/2 of a 28 oz. bag of unshelled beans, cooked them, and put the seeds into the blender. Instead of 1/2 cup tahini, I just used 1/2 cup sesame seeds. I did not add salt. This makes a pretty color green hummus! Great taste! Read More

Saw this served in an upscale restaurant and thought I would try it at home. This recipe pretty much nailed it. Tasted great to both myself and my wife. We shall see if our guests enjoy it too. Read More

This dip was pretty amazing! I would hold off on some of the lemon juice because it was a little too sour. Also it taste great without tahini if you dont have any. Read More
