  1. This was a great recipe! I used about 1 1/2 Cups of dried chickpeas (which I cooked in the slow cooker for 1 1/2 hrs), added about 1 tsp of salt, squeezed 1/2 lemon (no zest), 1/2 tsp cumin, 2 tbls. minced garlic (from the jar, this is a lot so only add this much if you really like garlic). I had no tahini or sesame seeds so I used 1 1/2 tbls. sesamee oil. Blended it all in my Vitamix, adding water as needed (probably somewhere around 3/4 cup, and it came out great. In the end, I also added 1/2 tsp. chicken bouillon and it tasted even better (obviously skip this one if you want it to be vegetarian or vegan). MUCH better than store bought!

  2. i dont use tahini.way too meny polyunsaturated fats.i use mct oil and i find that if i prepare it 24hrs ahead it does taste way better then if u eat it once u done it. im not vegan so i add low fat cream cheese that makes it extra creamy and higher in protein. if u r vegan u can add plain soya yogurt

  3. Thanks a lot for this recipe without oil or yogurt it stays fresher for longer!

    I followed the same as this, but tried it with light tahini, and preferred the lighter texture. I also used more of the chickpea juice to make it smoother. Then I added roasted red peppers (nice and quick from a jar), jalapenos, and some chilli sauce. Tastes great and will never go back to ready made! Since hummus is pretty much a staple food for me, I make it every week no fail :)

  4. How much of the peas, lemon, tahini, cumin, water and garlic do you use? I like your tip about the gas going into the water after cooking it but then you put the gassy water back in? How much is considered a serving? Can it be used for anything other than a dip? I saw some vids with humus as a dressing.. what do you think of wraps with whole grain wrap bread? thanks for all your hard work! I'm a meat eater overweight unhealthy person wanting to change my ways.. thanks for your help!
