Have you avoided making homemade hummus thinking it was too time consuming or you might not get the flavors just right like when you buy it?
It’s super easy and this recipe is the perfect basic recipe to get you started. From here you can add all sorts of add in’s you want.
You can stir in any of these add in’s once the base is made: chopped kalamata olives, sun dried tomatoes, roasted red peppers or just make it more garlicky by increasing the garlic I used with 2 more cloves.
It comes together in 5 minutes, seriously! Have a blender or food processor? That’s all you need and the ingredients of course LOL!
