This recipe is satisfying, inexpensive, and takes only 5 minutes to put together. I like this for late-night snacking or when last-minute company comes by for cocktails. Serve with fresh veggies or pita wedges. Store leftovers covered in the refrigerator for up to one week.

  1. how easy and tastes great to boot! I will never buy hummus again.
  2. LOVE this recipe and it was super easy! I however did not add basil or parsley. I love green olives and this is my new FAV hummus!
  3. Loved this recipe! Last time used artichoke hearts instead of olives and a little oil from the jar basil and extra garlic. Yum!!
  4. Like others I used less lemon juice and omitted the basil. Instead I added extra garlic and crushed red pepper. It came out delicious and so quick and easy! YUM!
  5. This is delicious! I just made it and can't wait to have some tonight. I let all the flavors sit for an hour before tasting. My 4 yr old twins gave it a thumbs up too!
  6. Easy great flavor!
  7. I made this as written and it tastes great. It's a good no-tahini hummus.
  8. This is my favorite hummus. So much better than the one in the supermarket. I omitted the basil and next time will reduce the lemon juice but it is a definite keeper.
  9. Like the Eagle!!!!
