Made this last night to take for work today and ending up eating about half! I did add a little extra lemon juice, probably a total of about a 1/4 cup and double the amt of cumin. Didn't have any cayenne, so used red pepper flakes. The taste is great - nice and garlickly. Used it to make a layered meditteranean salad with olives, feta and salad greens - YUMMY!

I had high hopes for this recipe, and it was pretty good, but it's not something I'll make again. I made a big batch of garbanzo beans and prepared half using this recipe and half using Greek Hummus With 5 Variations. We found that the other hummus recipe had a far superior flavor and a creamier texture. Like a couple of other reviewers, I had to add more liquids to get a smoother, consistency, and the sesame oil flavor just wasn't a good substitute for the tahini.

Not everything that seems too good to be true is! This is awesome. Everyone at the Greek dinner party felt the same... and so easy! Next time I'll use a bit more sesame oil and try the other rater's suggestion with more cumin and lemon. It was just great as written, though! Thanks, Kim!

Nice garlic flavor. Seemed a little dry so I doubled the yogurt and added 1T peanut butter to cut the grittiness of the chickpeas.

Very easy and very tasty. I made if for our veggies that we have on hand to snack on. Was getting tired of the usual ranch dressing we were using. Thanks for a new alternative.

This is so good! I love that it does not have tahini in it. I just don't usually have that available. I did not add any cayenne or red pepper, for me it did not need it. I ate it with some torn up whole wheat tortillas for a quick and light dinner. 1/2 cup is 2 WW points for anyone else interested. Thanks!
