Homemade Hummus

I love hummus and, lately I’ve been craving it like crazy. Now, normally, we buy it at Costco and we’re very happy with it. Like everything you purchase there, it comes in massive quantities and it tastes great. But just the other day, I thought about trying to make it at home. Would it taste any better?

I used this recipe from Oh She Glows because that woman’s recipes are flawless, culinary art. But I omitted the red peppers. And I got this:

I should add that I doubled the ingredients to make this much hummus.

It was sublime. Really, really amazing. Good enough to eat on its own. And I made enough to last a week.

In reality, this container is pretty large.

Yum! Hummus.

One last thing, if you are thinking of trying this, you do need a blender to get it mixed well. And, if you do try it, let me know how it went!

So, lately, we’ve been giving a plant-based diet a go. In a burst of enthusiasm I decided I could cook and gave refried beans a shot. Under my leadership, we’ve had some catastrophes in the kitchen but this one worked. It’s really super easy and just requires patience. Leave it to cook on its own and it’ll be great.

This is where I got the recipe on You Tube.

This is what it looked like.

They actually smell amazing. So much better than anything from a can.

As you can tell, I made enough for an army…still, it smells and tastes amazing and it only requires 3 ingredients! Plus, getting those beans in a bag cost under $2 for the recipe.

Let me know if you try it. Good luck!!
