I’m basically addicted to hummus. I won’t deny it.
Hummus is one of my all time favorite snacks and staple food in my household. I love eating it with pita bread, cut up vegetables, or even just by the spoonful. It’s also a must in sandwiches!
Hummus also comes in a million different varieties, but roasted garlic is my all time favorite, hands down.
You do know what hummus is right?
The healthy, delicious garbanzo bean based dip that goes with just about everything.
I go through at least one container every week!
If you’ve never made hummus at home, don’t be intimidated. I promise you that it’s super simple and can be thrown together in a flash. This recipe actually takes a little bit longer because the garlic has to be roasted beforehand, but trust me, it’s worth the wait.
This hummus recipe is so good, you’ll want to eat it every day, in sandwiches, on crackers, as a dip, sauce or salad dressing, or by the spoonful.
