I love sharing new recipes with you and today I have a real favorite.
Hummus is a main staple in my household. On crackers, with eggs, mixed with tabbouleh, on sandwiches, in wraps…. anything goes with hummus!
It’s my go-to whenever I’m heading to a potluck or am in charge of bringing something to share at a friends house. Every time, I’ll get the amazing compliment of “this is the best hummus I’ve ever had!”. My husband even thinks I should quit my business and start selling hummus. It’s seriously that good!
Don’t worry, I have no plans to be in the kitchen making hummus all day and night 😉
What’s so different from the store-bought varieties?
Well.. the secret lies in using dry chickpeas and real ingredients!
And… if you make a double or triple batch, you can portion it out and store it in the freezer for up to 3 months so you never have to be without hummus again!

Taste tip: The real key to out of this world hummus is to use dry chickpeas. Soak them overnight in water and then boil for 1 hour until cooked. The taste difference is well worth the bit of effort!
