Came from living-foods.com. A great variation: add red bell pepper and/or sundried tomatoes. Yum!

Is this truly good? I once made hummus with sprouted garbanzos and I went 'bleeeeh'.... I had to say farewell to my hard work

Does it taste overly-lemony??

NOT a limonhead

It's insanely good. Tastes liked the cooked thing to me. And play with it if you don't want too much lemon - easy to play with spices, additions, etc.

I made a variation of this today. Never made hummus before and needed something to go with my chips. Anyhow had about 3/4 cup of broccoli salad left from yesterday, added 1 small zucchini, the juice of 1/2 lime, a pinch of pink salt, a shake of garlic powder, a couple shakes of cumin, and a squirt of water. Whizzed it all in the vitamix and WOW! Very good. Will definitely try this recipe proper soon. The red pepper and dried tomatoes someone suggested sound good too.

Help, my zuchini hummus is too spicy

HELP, I made the zucchini hummus above but put too much cayenne pepper. What can I put in to take away some of the spiciness and make it more thick?

RFLF,
I'd go with more zucchini and tahini/sesame seeds.

Love all this creativity here.

I believe "original" recipe came from Matt Samuelson way back.

Elaina Love's friend who I remember making fabulous ice cream and sauces at Raw Festival years back.

Rawgoddess,
Love all your sharings and blog too. I remember you from RFT.

Between you and Carmella I could put on 400 pounds just reading your recipes that include to me lots of nuts at each of your blogs. Wow, regardless. I was drooling over Carmella's chocolates and your ice creamS. Oh, I'm on a 25 hour fast at the moment too per acupuncturist request. Here's the treatments having: www.red-white.net and takes about 3 months to get in for visit. It's mainly allergy talk, but didn't realize I had any till daughter came down with IBD and Crohn's.

Hi Carol!
Im so glad I came into this thread just now to get the hummus recipe - im going to make it for dinner.
Anyway, yes I do remember you well - its nice to hear from you! LOL, you had my laughing about gaining 400 lbs from reading the recipes on our blogs. It's true, this is whole/rich food - but hey - if a person is gonna indulge it may as well be the best of the best, right? lol
How is acupuncture? I've never been, i think because im scared of the needles - but ive always thought it looks interesting!
take care of yourself and those allergies! come back and talk to us soon!

I guess I screwed it up by adding some sprouted lentils to try to get a "beany" taste since there are no garbanzos.
I also left on the peel on the zucchini.

I'll finish it, but I found it to be a bit ...bitter or something and definitely not hummus tasting. I think I'll try adding some sunflower seeds. Maybe that will help.
