I received this book with high expectations. I am sadly disappointed with what appears to be a glaring error in the hummus recipes. I am new to hummus making (and cooking with beans in general), so I decided to purchase this recipe book.
The recipes themselves sound tasty, however, the amount of chickpeas they tell you to use cannot possibly be correct. Every hummus recipe in here (no tomato basil recipe?) tells you to use 2-1/2 cups of DRIED chickpeas soaked overnight. No problem there, except when you wake up the next day you have about 4 - 5 cups worth of expanded chickpeas.

It then tells you to dump them all into a food processor and add the rest of the ingredients. No problem there either, except the amounts of the ingredients are positively tiny when compared to the amount of chickpeas. The result?
You get what amounts to a bland bland bland brick of "hummus" that nearly destroyed my food processor. I added probably close to an extra CUP or two of liquid to try and salvage the batch...to no avail. In the end, I ended up throwing the whole mess out.

If I had to guess, based on recipes I've seen out on the Internet, what the author meant was 2-1/2 cups of already soaked chickpeas. Which is about a can and a half of store bought. In that amount I can see these recipes possibly working. I may even give the book another chance, now that I'm a bit wiser.
It gets two stars instead of one because I can only comment about the hummus portion of this book.

Hummus: And 65 other Delicious & Healthy Chickpea Recipes

Received my book rapidly, was in great condition and I've tried a few of the recipes which I must admit seemed a bit peculiar but ended up tasting very good. I'm happy with my purchase.
