This hummus is quit enjoyable. The taste of cucumber add a different twist. It is the first time I have made hummus and did stick to the recipe. The only negitive is that it is a bit thinner than the hummus I am used to. It could be that I added too much lemon juice (it was a large lemon) or the cucumber was too large. I will make this again.

BLAHHHH! For those of you ladies who said you made this hummus for your first hummus are really missing out on a good hummus. I made it exactly as stated and it was flavorless. I added some cumin which is in regular hummus and more olive oil and it helped a bit but will not make this again. If you want a good hummus a can of garbanzos, 1/3 cup tahini, juice from a one lemon. Tbsp cumin salt, and pepper and add olive oil while its all blending and use lots of garlic. Then top with paprika cant go wrong.

Yummy! I didn't have the tahini paste so I used 1 Tbsp sesame seed oil and about 1/3 c. sunflower seeds in place of the tahini paste. I used it as a spread on our sandwiches at lunch--that was a bit messy as it oozed out the sides, but very tasty on the toasted flatbread.

I found this really good! I LOVE hummus & eat it all the time. I always use cucumbers to sip into the hummus, but never thoughts about adding them to the dip itself! The only thing I did differently was add about 1/4tsp of Beaumonde seasoning (along with the other listed spices). it is just a personal preference of mine. Very good recipe! Thank you!

recommend roasting the garlic first, otherwise the garlic taste is really strong....great recipe though
