  • Really tasty! I eat very little salt, so I think I will halve it next time, and also halve the oil so it’s a bit thicker. Delicious, fresh flavor. The only hummus recipe I have tried and liked! Thanks!

  • As above, I’ve never found a hummus recipe I liked, but this one is great. I used only one tablespoon of oil, but two of lemon juice, and one scoop of protein powder. Fantastic, a keeper.
