This hummus recipe makes a perfect, take-along snack or even a spread for your morning toast!
I have a love/hate relationship with hummus. I absolutely adore the stuff. But when I try to buy it in the store, it either costs an arm and a leg, or it has added sugar. Something I avoid completely.
I finally got fed up and tried my hand at making my own. And you know what? It was easy! All you need is a food processor or a hand blender (a regular blender will work fine too.).
And if you’re wondering what to do with a large batch of hummus, here are some ideas:
- Use it in place of salad dressing
- Use it on sandwiches instead of mayo or other condiments
- Use it as a dip for veggies and clean eating chips
- Spread it over a tortilla and make a wrap with chicken & veggies

I made this last Sunday, we loved it! We ended up taking small bowls of it and flavoring it up to our liking (more garlic, old bay, plain, etc.) I do need to confess, the first batch went in the trash, it was really thick so I tried to stir it and the blender took a chunk out of the wooden spoon….so the whole batch got trashed! 🙂
Monica – Oh no!!! I did that once with a metal spoon. My blender was not happy.
