If you came into my kitchen and opened up my fridge I could just about guarantee that you would find some hummus in there!
It’s a staple around here. We eat it often.
And although it’s not always homemade, every time I make it from scratch I’m always left thinking the same thought.
“Man, this is so easy! Why don’t I make hummus more often?!”
This recipe is packed with flavor and really rich. It’s my fave but sometimes when I want to lighten it up a bit, I’ll cut back on the oil and/or tahini a bit and add in a little extra water.
Definitely not as rich but still packed with flavor.
Once you’ve got this base recipe down you can add in lots of different flavors and ingredients. A few of my favorites are roasted peppers, artichokes, and kalamata olives (BUT not all together;)!
What about you?! Have you ever tried making hummus before?! What are some of your favorite flavors?!
