Until about two weeks ago I was not a big fan. It was ok but I did not see what the big deal was all about then I had some in a persian restaurant and the light went on.

Now I make my own and love the stuff.

I'm curious now, what did you change in the recipe?

I am sure that most of the stuff I have had in the past was store bought. Very little taste and no texture. What was not store bought the beans always came from a can.

As to what I changed: I cooked my own beans. I used some of the cooking liquid with lemon juice and Tahini to make a creamy emulsion. When I chopped the beans I did not make them into chickpea butter. So I had a nice flavor and textures running from cream to slightly chunky.

I have the same user name on You Tube and I did post a video (I am not an expert on videos so donít expect to see me on TV).
