This is very easy to make. I had cooked up dried garbanzo beans, and I found that I needed slightly more liquid than called for, but it might just have been my beans. This is also very easy to add extra ingredients to, as I did when I made it the 3rd time, when I added a clove of garlic and some jalapeno pepper. Great recipe!

We thought this was very good! I did end up having to add extra italian dressing and even a little of the liquid from the beans to get a nice consistancy. I served this with homemade pita chips that were seasoned with garlic powder, sea salt and cracked pepper. Not your traditional hummus, but still very tasty! I am looking forward to playing around with some other additions. Thanks for sharing. :)

Love this!! Way better than store brand hummus. The walnuts give it a great flavor. My daughter is allergic to sesame seeds and this gives us a great alternative to traditional hummus!
