Just made this hummus.  It's the first time I've ever made hummus coz I've always been scared it would end up bland (so many people I know have ended up making bland hummus :()
I should never have worried - this recipe was absolutely wonderful.  Me & my boyfriend wolfed it down with falafel, salsa, mushrooms and pitta....and still have tons of hummus left.
I'll be surprised if I ever buy hummus again ow that I have this fab recipe.
Next time I'll try lemon and coriander...yum!

I just have to say again how awesome this hummus is!!!  I make it all the time now (twice a week, usually) because my sig o. is a hummus eating machine...

Anyway, here's my now tried and true version of this fantastic recipe:

1 can chickpeas (i.e. garbanzo beans)
1 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp tahini
2 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp plain rice milk or plain soy yogurt
1 clove garlic
1 tsp tamari
1 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp onion powder
1/2 tbsp flax oil (optional)
salt and pepper to taste

Place into bowl or tupperware, sprinkle pine nuts and a little parsley on top, drizzle everything with a little more olive oil, then put in fridge for a few hours to let flavors combine.  SO GOOD!  Thanks!!!

I've tried so many hummus recipes, and this is the first one that I've absolutely loved!    I made it once and thought it was great, but the second time I made it I did change a couple of things, and thought it came out even more flavorful: I added 1/2 teaspoon paprika, 1/4 teaspoon onion powder, and went with the full 1 teaspoon cumin.  I also had to add a little salt, but that's probably because I was using low sodium tamari.  I think next time I'll add a little pepper, too.  I added 1 tablespoon plain rice milk instead of using the juice from the can, and I only used 1 clove of garlic both times and it still seemed quite garlicy, so I won't be trying 2 unless I commit to roasting them (yum, but an extra dish to wash).  I'm also thinking of switching the tamari out for balsamic next time, just for a little variation.

Overall, awesome recipe!  You honestly don't have to change a thing, despite all the things I decided to change  :)  It's really quite perfect as-is!

Amazing recipe! This was the first time I've made hummus and it came out incredibly. I didn't have any tamari, so I just added more cumin and some black pepper; the result was nice and spicy. :) I can't believe how much more economical  and earth-healthy this is than buying hummus (even in bulk). It cost me about a dollar to make, and I'll be able to recycle my container each time I make it. Thank you so much for your amazing hummus genius!

There's not much I can say that hasn't already been said.  This was just truly great hummus-  Much better than the store variety, and so versatile!

Good recipe, tho I used bottled garbanzos and had to thin it quite a lot. I added some extra lemon juice and it came out very nice. I've had bad luck making hummus in the past but this one worked.
