Hooray for hummus! I love the variety of flavors available and, as a vegetarian, it’s a great plant based protein.
After buying many containers of hummus at the grocery store, I decided to try to make it myself. Now that I know how easy it is, I’m having lots of fun experimenting with different recipes and can make a batch of fresh, homemade hummus without much effort at all.
This is a good, basic hummus that uses ingredients that I always have on hand. I served it with gluten-free Tortatos chips.
