This was so fantastic! I might not have added quite a 1/2 cup cilantro packed, but other than that I made it exactly as shown and my guests just raved about it. No one felt guilty about dipping away. Even non-cilantro lovers didn't notice at all and sucked it down before I could tell them what was in it! Thank you for a fabulous recipe we can feel good about serving.

Very healthy recipe, but I think it has far too much tahini. Next time I'll add the tahini tablespoon by tablespoon and taste until the amount is right for our preferences. I also prefer a bit more garlic.

Fabulous recipe! Incredibly simple to make and so delicious! I served it with pita chips and crudites. My guests loved it and almost everyone asked for the recipe!

I didn't realize that soybeans came shelled or unshelled, so used 1/2 of a 28 oz. bag of unshelled beans, cooked them, and put the seeds into the blender. Instead of 1/2 cup tahini, I just used 1/2 cup sesame seeds. I did not add salt. This makes a pretty color green hummus! Great taste!

WOW this so delicious, I fallow the exact recipe except for the tahini I didn't have on hand and it still turn out great. I'm not even a cilantro fan you don't really taste it. Simple and so good definitely a keeper.

Saw this served in an upscale restaurant and thought I would try it at home. This recipe pretty much nailed it. Tasted great to both myself and my wife. We shall see if our guests enjoy it too.
