I have made this recipe for my family for several years now and it never disappoints. My kids take it on ski trips to share with the team and everyone always loves it! They always want to know why our hummus is a dark brown color. It's the olives! The recipe is equally great without the olives and/or feta. Wonderful with pita bread, chips, crackers, or veggies!

This is a very delicious hummus! I was out of tahini and do not like feta so omitted those. I added sundried tomatoes to mine. Very tasty. My entire family enjoyed it. This is now my go-to hummus. Read More

Not much flavor to this. Followed recipe except for adding a dash of cayenne. Will stick with Roasted Red Pepper Hummus. Read More

Absolutely worth all the ingredients. Slight sweet and salty twist on the traditional hummus flavor. Read More

This hummus is definitely full of flavor! Realized after I made it that I'd forgotten the feta; when I make this recipe again I will add it. The only change I would make is to use one teaspoon of cumin; a little strong for my taste. Read More

I fricking love this recipe, it's so adaptable. I've made it a dozen times now, with subtle variations (based on available ingredients at home) and it's been excellent every single time. Rather than adding water, my trick is one can drained, one can not. Perfect smooth consistency. If I want a little thicker, I "sploosh" out a little water from the second can. I've done none with fresh basil. One I used canned chopped black olives, store brand. Then no olives. Then kalamata, etc. One without cheese, for a vegan consideration. Etc, etc. Every one is perfect, whatever seasonings you add. Read More

This was the best hummus I've ever had, I highly recommend this recipe especially for parties. I didn't use the tahini because it wasn't in my budget. I used fresh dill instead of dry and added a little black pepper. Next time I make this I would like to roast the garlic. Read More

A wonderful hummus! I am allergic to garlic and so cannot buy hummus in the store. Making it plain was just not tasty enough, and then I found this. I omit the garlic and the dill due to allergies, and it is still delicious. Thank you for solving my hummus issues. Read More
