    A decent hummus base recipe. Too much lemon for my taste, so I'll cut back on that next time.

    Honestly I didn’t think it was too amazing . 2 cloves of garlic was waaaaayy too much and overall it didn’t have much flavor. But it was good I just feel like there could have been more added to it

    It’s good- but For me it had too much lemon.

    Way better than store bought with all its artificial flavorings and colors! Loved! Try the hummus in between making to make sure you don’t put too much salt.

    This is a delicious base. Of course I had to add my own touches. Such as cumin, some green olives, sesame seeds, and some hot sauce. But very good and is even better with whatever you like added.

    Good - way better than expected. I didn’t have yogurt on hand so I used some sour cream and used less oil than the recipe called for but yummy.
