I thought it was quite tasty. I like others, cut back on the oil. I did not want the extra calories and I like the texture of it like this. I used leeks instead of garlic. I increased the lemon and added cilantro. Simple, easy, healthy and flavorful. Great along side eggs in the morning, nice snack and good with fish too. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I agree, this was too bland, even after increasing the lemon juice and zest, garlic and salt. I think cayenne and/or cilantro would help. And yes, add scads more olive oil - remember, it's a GOOD fat. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Great recipe! I prefer low fat, so I didn't use any olive oil at all. It has good flavor and texture. I'll definitely make this again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
The recipe as written, I found, to be rather bland. It's REALLY dry. Do add more olive oil to achieve the consistency that you like most. I added three cloves of garlic in the beginning as I like a more pronounced flavor. Other than that, I followed the recipe and found that I needed to add more salt, cumin, coriander and, as indicated above, ALOT more olive oil. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Delicious! I used 1/8 c. tahini per one of the commenter's suggestion, and I only used 1 tsp olive oil instead of 3 tbsp. I also added, per another comment, 1 tsp wheat free tamari (I have Celiac and need to eat gluten free and a pinch of wasabi powder. I'm noshing on it right now with Mary's Gone Crackers. Yum!!! Gonna post about this on my gluten free diva blog. Ellen Allard item not reviewed by moderator and published

Not only do I get asked for this recipe all the time, but my 18 month old would eat this by the spoonful if I let her. It is a great way to get her to eat more vegetables. item not reviewed by moderator and published
