I made hummus for the first time today. (Broke out my food processor for the first time, too - it was a wedding gift, seven years ago . . .) Anyway, PROTIP: if you're going to browse recipes on the internet and "average them out" because you're usually a pretty good cook and weren't planning on measuring anything anyway, check the yield of the recipes before you use them.
My hummus ended up in the "oh god oh god can't breathe garlic's gonna get me" range because the recipe I got the amount of garlic was calibrated to make three times the total output as the recipes I got the other ingredient quantities from
I doubled everything else (nearly overflowing the food processor) and added some more stuff just for the heck of it and the hummus is now down from "death by garlic" to "vampires can't come on this block anymore." Incidentally, anyone need a gallon of garlic hummus?
