(I used chickpeas instead of pinto beans and started with salted and roasted sunflower seeds in the food processor instead of tahini.) This hummous has an awesome taste. It was a nice compliment with warm, cilantro and lemon flavored rice. Very delicious.

Completely bland even after adding extra salt and tahini. I would not make this agin.

I made this recipe after sampling some at a store. I have never had hummus before this. I must admit, this is fantastic!!! Even my picky toddlers loved it! I followed the recipe almost exact, I added an extra clove of garlic and a little extra olive oil to give it a creamier texture. Also, I made sure to scrape out all of the garlic and oil out of the pan with the zucchini. Definitely try this, it is very good!

Wonderfully tasty! I used 3 garlic cloves and 3 T. tahini, as others suggested, and drizzled in some more olive oil at the end, and also substituted chick peas for the pintos.

Too much cumin for the amount of beans and zucchini! I think that if the cumin were cut in 1/2 and added with possibly another herb, this might really be good. I had high hopes for this, and will try to adjust it to my liking. I like the idea of zucchini in a hummus mixture!

This makes a really nice light fluffy hummus! Also a great way to use up left-over grilled zucchini! I used chic peas instead of pinto beans and added 5 tbsp of the chic pea liquid to make it really creamy.

Didn't have tahini so I substituted sesame seeds, as suggested. Excellent! Definitely making again.

This is a good hummus for those 'eating for your type' I have used Black Eyed Peas also.
