Hummanuh, Hummanuh Hummus Recipe

Mmm, hummus – wouldn’t you agree? I mean, come on! Spreading it on your sandwich in place of mayo? Obscene. Dipping chips and vegetables in it mindlessly? Bliss. Isn’t it the reason anyone’s eaten a million baby carrots in one sitting?

As you can probably tell, it’s one of my favorite dips. I cannot be left alone with a container by myself because Gorge Fest will happen. Aaaaand you’re saying, “Jennifer, why in the heck are you making your own hummus if you can eat vats of it? Why make it so readily available to your mouth?!” Well, first, I gotta have it (addict). And second, I have a plan: sharing. How, you ask? Why, by raising up two voracious hummus eaters, that’s how! I’ve got built in cohorts in my Monkey and my PB!

(Rubbing hands together) Muah-ah-ah-aaaaah!


 The beginning of something wonderful.

Are you addicted to the mouth party that is hummus? If not… do you want to be?! Friends, try this recipe out. Sure, you can go buy a container at the store, but what for when you can easily make a fresher, homemade, tweaked-to-your-tastes version? Can’t get better than that!
