    I made my first humous with 1tbsp cumin, 2 tbsp lemon juice, 1tbsp tahini paste and some water - mixed it all with the chickpeas in the blender and now .... it doesn't taste of a lot - really plain and nothing like the humous I loved :( Have I done something wrong?

    It normally has garlic in it too, that's probably the taste you're missing.

    Thats not that bad if you concider that one job lot of hummus would last you a few days. You could split into 4 individual portions. If you can resist eating all of it lol
