Reviews for Garlic Garbanzo Bean Spread
"This was a delicious appetizer for our Mother's Day dinner. I don't own a food processor and it came out just fine in the blender."
"This is a simple & delicious hummus recipe. My 11-month-old devours it!~ Theresa"
"I would add 1/2 cup of Tahani and one tsp of mashed ginger. 1 clove of garlic is more than enough and skip the onion. That makes this spread bitter.Enjoy"
"A bit bland with a bitter after taste."
