This was good but not the best hummus I ever made.  The ingredient list appealed to me, having soy sauce and wasabi powder in it.  I've been toying with the idea of an Asian-based hummus myself.  Unfortunately these flavors were masked by too much cumin and I didn't even use the full amount.  The recipe calls for 2 Tablespoons and that just sounded like too much to me so I cut it in half and it was still the dominant flavor along with the lime.  I love the limeyness but I really wanted to taste that wasabi and I didn't so I added a little more and then a little more.  The powder wasn't working so I added some wasabi paste.  Perhaps my powder was old?? 
After all was said and done, I threw it back in the blender and added some tahini.  I know there is no written rule that hummus must have tahini, but I like it that way.
