This is my favorite hummus. So much better than the one in the supermarket. I omitted the basil and next time will reduce the lemon juice but it is a definite keeper.

Easy, great flavor!

I made this as written and it tastes great. It's a good no-tahini hummus.

Loved this recipe! Last time used artichoke hearts instead of olives and a little oil from the jar, basil and extra garlic. Yum!!

This is delicious! I just made it and can't wait to have some tonight. I let all the flavors sit for an hour before tasting. My 4 yr old twins gave it a thumbs up too!

Excellent as is. Good when first made, best when let set a day or so. Only change I made was to crush the garlic rather than mince it.

People love this. I hate to give out the recipe because then THEY bring it to the potluck. It's an easy winner.

how easy and tastes great to boot! I will never buy hummus again.

LOVE this recipe and it was super easy! I however, did not add basil or parsley. I love green olives and this is my new FAV hummus!
