I made this the first time by the recipe exactly. I missed the sesame flavor without the sesame paste, but liked the reduced fat/calorie idea. The second time I made it, I decided to use sesame oil instead of olive oil. This way, the calorie/fat difference was negligible, but the sesame flavor was included--YUMMY!! I also doubled the garlic and halved the cumin, as others suggested. I used 1 T lemon juice and added bean juice, as needed, during the blending process. For those on WW, 1/4 of this recipe is 2 points...put it on cucumber spears or carrot chips and you can't go wrong! :)

great recipe, if you are looking an alternative to hummus without tahini. i doubled the garlic, halfed the cumin, added a few shakes of ground red pepper, and some lemon juice. you really need to add a little lemon, otherwise the recipe just isn't has "bright". i really enjoyed this one!

This hummus was pretty good, but it was sort of bland. It was a lot better after adding paprika, a few drops of chili oil, and some sesame seeds.
