Homemade Hummus

Confession. I didn’t like hummus the first time I tried it. Or the second or the third time either. But as my interest in plant-based protein grew, I looked to hummus again.
I found it was easy to make, easy to make different varieties and so yummy! They say babies have to try a new food up to ten times to develop a taste for it. Maybe us adults are still wired that way? If traditional hummus isn’t in your taste profile, try this recipe. Then tweak it based on what you do like!

This is my kind of cooking. A little bit of this, a little bit of that; it’s hard to get wrong! We eat this with crackers, chips and all kinds of dipping veggies!
