Like hummus? Have you ever made your own? No? Well it’s time you did!
It may seem more convenient to pick Hummus up at the store. Once you see how easy it is to make your own creamy, fluffy hummus at home though, you’ll never go back to the gritty sludge masquerading as hummus. On top of that, making your own is also more economical and reduces waste. Plus, after making it, you get to reward yourself with a tasty snack. What do you have to lose?
Hummus, made from mostly chickpeas, is a great plant based, protein packed snack. Enjoy it with sliced vegetables like carrots or celery, or slathered on pita bread. I love spreading it on toast, adding some thinly sliced cucumber, and sprinkling over some feta or olives for an easy, healthy lunch.
Now, I’m not going to claim this is the most authentic hummus recipe. But it makes a great option if you’re in a rush and need a snack to meal prep for the week. To make it, you only need a handful of pantry staple ingredients, about 10 minutes, and a high speed blender or food processor.
You may like hummus, but after making it yourself, you’ll love it!
