    what is the serving size?
    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.
    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.
    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.
    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.
    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.

    This was very good! Much better than I expected. Perfect snack.
    i decreased the oil to 1 teaspoon, the tahini to 1/8 cup, increased the cumin and coriander to taste, and added cayenne pepper. it's easy. a very tasty recipe! will make again.
    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.
    Make recipe as described, Serve thin slices of Focacio bread, Great!
    Hummus is a favorite of just about every party. This one wasn't too different than your standard hummus, so to increase the "Asian element" and make it stand out, I added a teaspoon of soy sauce and wasabi paste, and instead of parsley I threw a few leaves of cilantro in the food pro before mixing. Dressed it up a little bit. Give it a try.
    A friend of mine had asked me if I could make her some EDAMAME HUMMUS.
     No problem, thinking this isn't for me.
     I could barely give it to her, it was GREAT! Will make agian, but this time not to share!
    I have tried it so many times. It is delicious and healthy. I usually add a little more lemon juice. Great for parties
    I made this for a recent gathering of friends, and should have doubled the recipe--it was GONE before everyone even got there. Even the guests who aren't very fond of hummus raved about the wonderful flavor!
     Two points: make sure that you have a strong blender, and be careful that you don't drop lemon pips into it (whoops!!)
    really good flavor. nice change from original hummus.
    This was suprisingly delicious!
    This is an excellent dip. It's tangy and the tahini gives it a great flavor. It tastes awesome with pita chips.
    this is absolutely delicious!!! my husband and I were fighting over who would get this for lunch
    Easy, quick and absolutely delicious! A must try for a gathering of friends or for one to snack on something healthy.
    I was a bit disappointed by this recipe. It didn't have a lot of flavor although I added sauteed onion and some extra garlic to it. The taste definitely improved by the second day, but still a bit bland.
    Oh my gosh! This was a huge hit when I brought it to a party. You can't go wrong with it! Yum, yum, yum! Easy to make too.
    I made it for my family and they loved it! They have all asked for the recipe to make on their own. I made this with the black bean hummus recipe and a chick pea hummus and placed in a three sectioned dish - it was terrific!
    I made this as part of an Asian Fusion themed party. It was loved by my 20 guests! Great recipie and very easy to make. I found shelled soybeans in the freezer section at Trader Joes.
