This is a delicious and easy hummus to make. It's great to replace the meat in sandwiches with this hummus - it gives the sandwich great flavor. You can add less lemon juice according to your preference. You can also add additional spices if you like. Enjoy with some chips!

This was easy and I could see it being part of a burrito wrap with lettuce tomatoes sour cream and maybe shredded cheese. As a dip not bad but a little bland it needs to be accompanied with additional ingredients to be a WOW. 4 stars for ease and healthfulness! Read More

This was really great. I made few changes because I didn't have dried basil or garlic powder. Instead I used one clove fresh garlic and about a teaspoon of chili powder. Also I think this could benefit from a little EVOO to make it creamier. This is delicious! Read More

The first time I made this I followed the directions to the letter. I tasted it and found it very bland and dry. I decided to take it in a southwestern direction. I added the juice of a lime more basil granulated garlic (much more flavorful than garlic powder) a dash of fresh cilantro and cumin. All were added to taste. Once my guests overcame the odd color they were hooked. It's become a requested dish at parties and potluck dinners. I've used pita bread pita chips tortilla chips and crostini to dip. The best pita chips were the best. Read More

This is really good. I use it as the base layer for 7 layer dip instead of retried beans. Great with nacho chips Read More
