First time I've made this and it's very good, tasty hummus, wouldn't have thought of putting yogurt in but it really works, I'll definitely be making it again, and recommending it.

Really nice used olive oil instead of chickpea water, obviously not as low fat. Made my own tahini by crushing sesame seeds with olive oil in a pestle and morta till a paste. Tasted delicious.

This was nice and easy, but lacked something - I wish I knew what! I added 2tsb cumin and some salt but it's still a bit bland. I will do it again, but will add paprika as well for extra spice.

I think that my poor rating may have something to do with the chef being my brother....having banged on about the merits of making houmous yourself I left him with the ingredients for this recipe and instructions to crack on. He put too much of the chickpea liquid in it and it looked and tasted like a disgusting sloppy mess. My partner and I saved the houmous in order for it to become edible but even so I'm not convinced by the recipe. I just blend tinned chickpeas, 1 garlic glove, olive oil and lemon juice to a thick consistency when I make houmous and it is always first rate - I can't see how the addition of chickpea liquid or yogurt is going to help the recipe.

This was so easy and tastes lovely. But as much as I love garlic, I found a whole clove was too much. Will try it with half a clove next time

Really yummy! I bought the tahini and then realized I didn't have greek yogurt when I got home. Substituted 1 Tbsp of light cream cheese instead. Super recipe! Had never used tahini in anything before - seems very similar to peanut butter. I will substitute PB next time I run out of tahini. Never need to buy over-priced store made humous again! Yey!

So easy and the best tasting I've made. Omitted the tahini and added a squirt of sweet chilli sauce. No need to add any extra liquid.

Nice and easy, barely needs any added liquid. Definitely needs something to add flavour, like sweet chilli sauce or roasted red pepers
