AMAZEBALLS! AND I ADDED SPICY SAUCE AKA,,, FRANKS RED HOT

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 17, 2012

I like to use two cans of Garbonzo beans. . .

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 15, 2011

I liked the flavor of this hummus, but I substituted tahini for the sesame seeds, and seasoned rice vinegar for the cider vinegar. I had to add a bit more liquid to get it to blend in my blender.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 22, 2008

This is not authentic hummus! The consistency is all wrong; the sesame seeds need to go and it needs 1/4 cup or more of vegetable or olive oil. Do not use a blender; it does not do anything on this combination of ingredients except stall.
