I make a new type of hummus almost every week for my husband. I rarely eat any but he eats it all. He says this doesn't taste like any one thing but it isn't very hummus-y. Having been married a long time I can translate that to mean: "Where's the garlic?". If I were to make this one again I would definitely add 3-4 cloves of garlic minced. Thanks for the recipe!

I had to try this just to see how maple syrup would taste. I really modified this recipie though; omitted fennel tahini and yeast. It still turned out pretty good. The maple adds an interesting tone to it. Read More

Great smelling hummus and I like the color too! I had just finished drying my tomatoes when I tried some of them out in this recipe! I omitted the maple syrup because I thought it would be too sweet! This is delicious! Read More

I'm so disappointed! This recipe sounded so good and I followed this recipe to the letter but it was so thick it burned out my blender motor. I then used a small food processor and didn't have much better luck. I kept having to add more lemon juice olive oil and tablespoon after tablespoon of water. It was awful to smell and taste. I really don't know what went wrong. Read More

The color is beautiful. I'm okay with the maple syrup but but the fennel makes it a little weird. I like the idea of skipping the fennel and syrup and adding a little garlic. Next time. Read More
