Homemade Hummus

It’s so easy to make hummus and ends up being about half the price you’d pay to buy it ready-made. This recipe is a great base to which you can add whatever your heart desires. I actually just like it plain too.

It’s so easy to make hummus and ends up being about half the price you’d pay to buy it ready-made. You can freeze hummus so make a bunch and stow it away to use as a quick appetizer or a midnight snack. This recipe is a great base to which you can add whatever your heart desires. I actually just like it plain too.
