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.

Good god, this stuff is incredible. I was looking to make something hummus-y but had no chick peas and no tahini. Probably a bad sign... but then I found this recipe! I whipped up some tahini with sesame seeds and oil, took frozen edamame from the fridge, and boom--sprinkle in that garlic and cilantro--and suddenly I had delectable hummus. Indeed, this is surprisingly delicious. I've eaten it with carrots, and I've put it on a sandwich with some feta. Can't wait to make it again!
