This is fantastic! I can’t wait to make it again. I added extra uncooked garlic because I was afraid the cooked garlic wouldn’t be strong enough for my tastes, and ended up with “death by garlic”! At first I thought it was a big mistake, but now I’m hooked. Next time I will extra raw garlic and use a tip from my old hummus recipe, which is cooking the canned chick peas for 20 minutes with a half teaspoon of baking soda, drain and rinse. This makes the hummus much smoother.

Dang it! I made a mistake. I thought I was reviewing the curried acorn squash hummus. My review was for that. Sorry.

Oh, and I’ve found this a great solution for almost anything too bland. I just add a spoonful or two. My favorite use is spread on Ezekiel bread and topped with a big pile of sprouts. I’m really going to keep this on hand. I’m having a hard time giving up fat, and this on bread instead of butter is a great substitute.

Hi,
As a person new to vegan cooking, is “roasted” a euphemism, or just implied?
I don’t want to mess up good ingredients.
Your vlog FOK has been helping to educate me.

You just missed that the description of the recipe it says “pan-roasted” carrots

The name of recipe and description makes it sound like the carrots are oven roasted but the recipe doesn’t say that. Am I missing a step?

I was wondering the same thing.

This is a very tasty dip but doesn’t taste like hummus.

This was a delicious hummus recipe! The cilantro really adds to the flavor of the recipe. I used this as the hummus for the Mediterranean Style Pita Pizzas with Quick-Pickled Onions. Very tasty! I would recommend using a food processor to blend as my blender was struggling to effective mix everything together.
