    I think adding the cilantro and lime gave the hummus a really interesting twist. SO much better than store bought and amazingly easy to make. I thought it was fabulous!

    This is so good. I made the cilantro-lime version and added 1 Tbsp. of tahini. I processed it for over a minute, but it's still not as smooth as I like. Does anyone know the secret to super-smooth hummus?

    So quick and easy - lovely taste. And very few ingredients required to have on hand which is what makes this a go-to recipe! I don't own a food processor so I manage to mix this up in my blender with a couple of stirs to get all the chickpeas to the bottom. Use this all week on toast, and for dip for veggies and pretzels. Approved!

    In response to the question from the reviewer on how to get a smoother hummus, peel the beans! Put the drained beans in a bowl and cover with cold water. Gently work them between your fingers, and the skins will come off the beans and float to the top. It really works and makes the hummus super smooth and creamy. As a note on this recipe...tahini is a must for hummus! This is a good basic recipe to adjust to your tastes, however.

    This recipe was excellent! I didn't change a thing. It has the right amount of lemon with a little kick from the red pepper. I served with cucumber sticks and pita chips.

    Wow! So easy to make and VERY good! It's got a good kick to it. I added 1/4 tsp of both salt and pepper. I think it's the pepper that gives it the kick.

    The lemon flavor was too strong! I'd put in less lemon juice next time.
