"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."

"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."
