Very good hummus, but it could use a bit more salt. I used "heart healthy" pitas, which made great chips at less than 4 calories per chip.

Love this recipe! I did leave out tahini because I couldn't find it in the store. I also made the mistake of buying pitas that were not easy to slice...so when I make this again (which will be soon!) I'll be more careful in my selection. The pita chips add just the right amount of heat to make things interesting! I would take this to book club gatherings and parties. Fast, easy and delicious!

Made this tonight and mostly followed the recipe. The hummus is fairly easy to make and I found it to be quite "lighter" (ie, fluffier) than store-bought hummus. I used the immersion blender instead of a food processor and it worked just fine. The part of the recipe that I made a derivation to was the chips - I was at the point where I did not have much time, so I didn't mix the spices together. Instead, I lightly sprinkled each spice on the pitas (I used dabs of olive oil, since I didn't have cooking spray). In hindsight it would have been better to mix the spices so as to have better (and less intense) coverage. All in all, a great recipe, and a great dish to bring to a party as an appetizer.

This hummus is awesome. It's my go-to standard hummus. The pita chips are great (and addictive) too!

Great hummus. I make this for snacks and as a sandwich spread, and I like that it can be eaten straight out of the fridge; I found a lot of other hummus recipes went too dry after refrigeration. The texture of this one is great.

Great basic hummus, though I think it was a bit bland. I added another 1/4 tsp. of salt and white pepper to mine and it made all the difference!

This is delicious! Fast and easy with a nice lemony flavor.

This is a great recipe. The first time I made it, I didn't like the strong flavor of the cumin, so I stopped adding it. I just made this again and used almond butter instead of tahini (don't have any) and added a little more lemon juice and water to help it blend better. I also put in some garlic and onion powder, along with some extra minced garlic. I love my hummus really garlicky. Overall, this is a good recipe, but you may want to add more seasonings/garlic in. :)
