Budget-Friendly Homemade Hummus [RECIPE]

Good Morning Everyone!

How are you today? I hope you’re doing well. Today I want to share a quick recipe with you that I’ve been meaning to make… but have been too lazy to do. (Okay, maybe I was a wee bit terrified too). Hummus! I know, everyone has probably made this before. And yes, it is super easy… but I was admittedly shaking in my boots a bit when I made it my mission to whip this up on Friday.

There are 4 basic components in hummus:

  1. Tahini (ground sesame seed sauce)
  2. Canned chickpeas
  3. Ground cumin
  4. Olive oil

That’s it. Everything else is just “extras” that add for seasoning and flavor. But if you have those 4 ingredients, you can easily whip up hummus any time the mood strikes. I was so happy with this simple recipe that I’m already making another batch today to dip some veggies into! Yum! Make sure to use a food processor, (or get a great arm workout), to make sure the chickpeas are super mashed through and are smooth. I hope you enjoy this budget-friendly recipe everyone and as always, keep on cooking! ❤
