"This is the best recipe I've found on this site!!! I am orginally Syrian, so we are always making traditional hummus and when I decided to make this, my family was really skeptical. Everything chang..." See moreed when they tasted it and my mom single-handedly ate almost the whole recipe!! (this tastes more flavorful if you double the amount of the spices)"
"I made this hummus with black beans at first and it turned out good. However, when I substituted black beans with garbanzo beans - it turned out even better! You will need to use more liquid with ga..." See morerbanzo beans, though."
"Very good hummus, but very different from the classic garbanzo bean variety. My brother and I took this on our cross-country trip and ate some every day for 5 days straight and didn't get tired of it..." See more! The key to getting that hummus taste out of the black bean is the tahini. If you don't use tahini, you may as well just have some refried beans from your local Mexican restaurant. This is also an easy recipe to vary with other ingredients. Just remember that if you're going to add different spices, use fresh ones! There is no substitute!"
