MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 29, 2014

Like several others, I also felt that 3/4 cup oil was too much, so used 1/2 cup and thought the consistency was just right. I served it with guacamole tortilla chips. Very easy and delicious.

MY REVIEW

This is a good basic recipe. However, here is a more succulent adaptation I came up with. I promise: you'll never buy store bought hummus again!

1/2 cup olive oil

1 can chick peas

4 Tbsp lemon juice

2 heaping Tbsp minced garlic

1/2 tsp salt

2 heaping tsp cumin

Blend all ingredients except beans in the processor on low. Add beans; process on high till smooth.

Yum! This was so good, and so quick and easy to make. I added lots more garlic and lemon juice than the recipe called for. I was wondering what it would taste like without tahini, (a staple in many other hummus recipes), and it was delicious. I had bottle of sesame oil on hand so I threw a splash in the hummus and it really gave it great taste. I also substituted olive oil for the canola oil. No more store-bought hummus for me! Thanks!

This is a good basic hummus, but needs more flavour. Next time I'd add herbs or cumin. I used only 2/3 of the oil and it was still way too much - half would probably be plenty.

This is my new go to hummus. So much better than store bought and so versatile. I used a little more than 1/2 cup olive oil and 1 can of garbanzo beans, rinsed. A new favorite in our house!
