1 serving is 1.5 oz. Would add a bit of paprika or chili garlic paste next time. This recipe comes out good.

instead of regular water, use the water from the beans. Add a bit of flavor.

I just submitted a recipe for fattoush which is a Lebanese Salad often eaten along side hummus. I was going to add a hummus recipe but this one is perfect.
