Homemade Hummus

Homemade Hummus Photo

It’s no secret, homemade hummus is SO much better than store bought – it’s much more creamy and smooth. It can also be much less expensive than store bought. This recipe is one of our favourites because it’s so versatile. You can add extra flavour like a drizzle of balsamic reduction, paprika and chili, or even caramelized onion.
