I have made this a number of times but this time I accidentally added too much liquid to the mixture. I had planned on using one tin of chickpeas with the remainder of the recipe unchanged. I then added the second tin to thicken it up. I have to say that there was very little diff in the flavour between recipe with one tin or two. I did have to add a little bit extra seasoning ( sea salt and freshly ground black pepper ) but otherwise it was lovely. It is a big batch but that is not a concern for me !

Made this with half a can of leftover chickpeas I had. Scaled it down. Followed other readers comments and used just over half the amount of chickpeas in the recipe. The best hummus I have ever made. Will definitely make again.

I love this recipe. I used one can of chickpeas and didn't change the remaining ingredients. It was perfect as I like it lemony and garlicy ! I didn't blend the coriander just tore it by hand and stirred it in at the end.

My son loves houmous and shop bought doesnt last very long. This is a quick and tasty recipe which makes a nice large batch.

This is my go to hummus recipe, it's so easy and tasty- and lower fat with the yoghurt! I personally leave out the coriander and just go for lemon but I guess this shows you could use the recipe as a good base for any flavours.

Followed comments from others. One can of chick peas, a half lemon, 3 tbsp. tahini, coriander and cumin seeds. One clove of garlic is probably too much.

2 stars only because of the coriander idea. If you wanna make nice hummus, use 1 can only (100 g dry chickpeas = 250 g boiled if you boil it yourself), not more than 1 lemon (and it's only if you're a big lemon fan - I always use just half) and at least 3 tbsp tahini. Tahini is essential, you can't skip it! Also, you need 5-6 tbsp water (use that from the chickpeas) in order to blend it easier and to have smoother texture. The rest of the seasonings here I find proper, plus 1 tsp ground coriander seeds and 1 tsp ground cumin seeds.

Made this with my 8 year old son last weekend. He took it to school with some sliced up pitta bread and vegetable sticks and absolutely loves it. He's very proud of himself for making it too! Must say that it was it very nice so we're just off to the kitchen to make some more.

Amazing recipe. Halved it and it lasted for 3 days in fridge and was Enough for 3 lunches with breadsticks! Used a huge garlic clove...garlicky but tasted fantastic! Highly recommend to anyone! Even the other half said it was nice and he doesn't like houmous! Halve the recipe if it is for lunch for one person. If its got a gathering I would go the whole quantity, maybe even half again!

Did make about 3 good batches of houmous. I think next time I'll put in just the one lemon, I don't know if the lemons I was using were too big, but it was almost sweet it was so lemony. A little less garlic and more coriander. The other half seems to be making his way through it all though, so maybe I'm just picky!

Today I am going to be making the lemon and coriander houmous, is this freezable? Would it also be possible for you to add to each recipe whether particular dishes can be frozen?.
