"Would have liked the hummus to be a little thicker. I will probably just save time and continue buying pre-made hummus."

"This recipe was certainly easy! I did leave a little of it plain, w/o the roasted red peppers, and it was good as well. I had second graders try this and most of them liked it! It's very creamy with great flavors."

"Oh my god so yummy. I did not bother chopping anything and added the zest of 1 lemon & it's juice. Also key is when you are cooking use Kosher salt. When you are baking use your table salt. I'm telling you your taste buds will thank you!"

"This is a great recipe. It tastes just like the hummus that is sold at our local grocery store in the deli. The second time I made this, I reduced the lemon juice to 1/4 cup, as 1/3 cup was a bit strong for me. I never added the sesame seeds. I didn't have those on hand. It is a great alternative to sour cream based dips."
