Homemade Hummus

Love store-bought hummus? You will love this Homemade Hummus even more, I guarantee it! Hummus was often on my weekly grocery list back in the day. I knew it was a healthy option as a snack or for my sandwiches in replace of mayo. Once I finally invested in a food processor, it didn't make sense to buy store-bought hummus anymore. If you read food labels, which I highly recommend, you will notice some hummus' often have a bunch of unnecessary ingredients. When I make it myself, I can control what goes into it; the ingredients, flavor and spice; less is more. If you feel similarly about , you have to try this recipe out! The OG Homemade Hummus @livlinghealthy style.
