Great recipe! Sriracha works wonderfully. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Not sure where my comment went but I will post again. This recipe is great and although I have never been a hummus fan, because store bought is just not the same, I could eat this all the time. My one comment about this recipe being salty is you have to remember that you are using canned chickpeas and there is salt in canned beans of any kind. So cut back on the salt and then add it after you taste it. I know Bush's beans has a low sodium line of beans so maybe you could try that. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Amazing.... have made this a hundred times. I serve half the recipe and freeze half for another day or blend with drained jar roasted red peppers. Love Ina's recipes. Failsafe, easy and regular ingredients. This one is so simple and ready in 5 minutes. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is very tasty, although I did tweak to make a smoother consistency. I added 3 T olive oil and an additional 2 T chickpea liquid. Also reduced salt a little. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Much easier than many that as you to cook the chick peas yourself. I guess if you really want it from scratch, do that. But this is so good and so easy. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I have tried many hummus recipes over the years, but this is hands down the best I have ever had~! It is as amazingly tasty, as it is easy to make. I have finally found my "forever" recipe. Thank you Ina! You've done it again! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Delicious! The whole family loved it! First time making hummus and so glad to have a go-to recipe! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Just made this and it is so very yummy... you just can't go wrong with any of Ina's recipes item not reviewed by moderator and published
Just made this recipe and I LOVE it. Glad I read the reviews, I only used 1 tsp of salt but its still a bit too salty. I cut down to 2 cloves of garlic and added 2 tbsp of olive oil. This is honestly the best recipe I've tried so far. Really great! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is a delicious recipe!:) I love garlic, so it was not "to garlicky" for me. I love the addition of the dashes of hot sauce. It perks up the flavor and brings out the tahini, lemon juice, and chickpea flavors. This will definitely be my "go-to" hummus recipe! Thanks, Ina! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I also drizzled a bit of olive oil in at the end, and topped with toasted pine nuts. Delish! item not reviewed by moderator and published
You changed her recipe in to your own. So you can't really comment on hers, because you didn't even make it. item not reviewed by moderator and published
