MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 9, 2014

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.
