Reviews for Lime Cilantro Hummus
"I must have done something wrong. The garlic was way too strong. I won't make it again."
"I think I ate half of this hummus before it was out of the food processor! I usually purchase hummus dip at the store. Not after trying this recipe! It was quick, easy and I had almost everything on hand. I did take the suggestion of decreasing lime and replacing with oil. It was perfect. The garlic and spice ratio was just right for me. Highly recomend this great recipe."
"very easy and such a great green fresh taste. this is my go to Hummus recipe now. I serve it with whatever fresh veggies i have n hand"
"easy & Delicious! I halved the recipe - glad I don't have to share! Will definitely make again!"
"Added a bit less garlic/lime juice and a bit more olive oil as per previous reviewers. So delicious! Fun to make your own cuz bought can be quite expensive."
"Awesome recipe. Was an instant hit with my family"
"I've made this recipe twice, as written, and it has gotten rave reviews from guests."
"Following the advice of others who have rated this recipe, I used 1/3 cup lime juice and 3 cloves garlic. It was excellent!"
