I do not eat any hummus but Sabra's so was looking forward to making this copy cat recipe. This had a good flavor and was easy to make but I wouldnt say an exact match. Did use the citric acid, streamed in the olive oil at the end and roasted some garlic to top the hummus with. Served for a late afternoon snack with vegetables and pita chips. Made and reviewed for the What's On The Menu recipe tag game.

I love Sabra Hummus and haven’t been able to figure out how to make it at home until now!! I love this hummus and it’s super easy. The one problem I had was making the recipe as is it is much too dry and thick. I couldn’t even blend it in my Vitamix! I had to add probably a 1/2 cup water to thin it out so I could even blend it, but the taste is superb.

This is a fantastic recipe! Best homemade Hummus I have ever made. I had the citric acid that I bought with some canning supplies and I think this really made the difference.

Will you please tell Mr. Wilbur that his Sabra mock hummus is better than the one from the store. I make it so much I have the recipe memorized. It's quick and easy. Unfortunately, if I'm not careful, I will sit down and eat the entire thing! I double up when I take it to events.

I was very skeptical that you could make a hummus at home that tasted like Sabra, which I consider the best store brand. Usually things are so processed and have so many artificial flavors and preservatives they are hard to replicate.

However, I'm happy to say that I was wrong. This recipe was not only delicious, it really did taste almost exactly like the Sabra brand. I even did a side-by-side taste test and while it wasn't exact, it was incredibly close.

Mine needed much more lemon. This tasted nothing like Sabra, but was still good.

Very close to sabra except I did not have the citric acid the recipe called for....I am happy with this recipe.....from this you can add other ingredients to tweak it.

Nicer with dried chick peas instead of canned, they need to be soaked overnight though. Also better with freshly squeezed lemon juice (juice of 2 lemons) and olive oil is the correct oil to use. It's also usually sprinkled with Paprika and drizzled with olive oil, garnished with a few sliced Kalamata olives.

This is fantastic. I used white beans instead of garbanzos so it's a little thin but the flavor is wonderful! No more store bought hummus for me.
almost there

This was very good. I don't know about the recommendation to use True Lemon, however as this contains sweetener. I ended up using Fruit Fresh which is a mixture of ascorbic and citric acids as I could not find a pure citric in the grocery store and didn't want to wait. The flavor was very good but the Tahnini was a bit on the strong side. might be the brand or maybe I used too much (potent stuff). Mixed with chopped pickled jalapenos and it was almost as good as the real Sabra Jalapeno Hummus...I didn't have a problem with separation (I mixed the oil in slowly) but then again the real product has a problem with separation...
