    Hummus Recipe

    Hummus is a very healthy and yummy snack that we like to enjoy often.

    Unfortunately, it is rather expensive in stores, so I bought it on special occasions only.

    One day I decided to try making it myself to see if it would taste as good as the store-bought stuff and to my surprise, it tasted better. You can store it in the refrigerator for about 4 days.

    I also made the tahini for this recipe. It was very, very simple to make. You can store it in the refrigerator for 1 month.

      I substitute cumin for dill and put in way more lemon juice for a nice, tangy edge. It’s our littlest one’s all time favourite food!

      I use dried, soak over night then boil for an hr with a dash of baking soda. My food processor is broken, so I use the blender. It comes out very smooth, better than when I used the FP…even w/o removing the skins.
