Yummy! I think I'm in love... my can of chickpeas was 791 ml which was a little more than called for, so I just added a little extra of everything. Oh and my garlic had gone bad, so I used some garlic powder (about a tbsp). Going on Greek Pita Pizzas - America's Test Kitchen! Made for ZWT #6.
Fantastic!! I love hummus and this one is right up there with my favorites. I cut the recipe in half but should have made the entire thing. I also used fresh almond butter and a bit of fresh parsley on top for a some color. Thanks for posting Sharon. Made for ZWT 6.
What a winning recipe!!!! This is such a yummy twist on hummus! Mmmm! I luved the addition of almond butter (I used Almond Butter), which gave the hummus a slightly sweet taste. My only change was to leave out the lemon juice as I cant have it. Other than that I stuck to your recipe and it came out perfect! Thank you so much for sharing this keeper with us, Sharon! I will make it again and again. Made and reviewed for Veggie Swap #23 June 2010.
