SO HOW'D IT GO?

Not bad! Easy, quick and very good. I remembered this recipe after discovering that I only had about two tablespoons of tahini left, and didn't want to make a trip to the store to make a hummus recipe that called for more tahini. I didn't have club soda, but added a few tablespoons of soy yogurt to give the hummus a smoother, creamier texture. (Got this tip I think from dedemed.com) I was surprised at how the mustard add a subtle zip to the taste.

Adding a little soy yogurt also gives the hummus a smooth, creamy texture.

exactly. I found that it fluffed it up without giving it any weird tastes :)

what does the club soda do? Make it airy and light? That's what I'm picturing...which could be awesome! It's so hard to get hummus light and fluffy.
