How To Make Homemade Hummus 

Store bought is good, but Homemade Hummus is even better!! It’s so fresh and creamy, you’ll be hooked on this homemade version the first time you make it…I am! I love to enjoy it with fresh veggies out of the garden or a tasty cracker…but pita chips are my favorite!

If you know me, you know I’m a snacker. Not a slacker. A SNACKER. Anything in small bites is right up my alley. I also like to eat healthy, so I started making my own hummus and haven’t looked back. It so easy and keeps in the fridge for about a week, so it’s handy whenever that little snack urge strikes!
