This homemade hummus recipe is easy, healthy, creamy, and full of flavor. The best part? You only need 5 minutes!
Making hummus at home is so much better than buying it at the supermarket. Not only do you eliminate all the chemicals, you also know exactly what goes inside. Most people think that making hummus is so labor intense but in reality, it’s one of the easiest recipes to make! I also love to make my hummus with limes instead of lemons, I find it gives it a zestier and tangier flavor. I also used a little less tahini than other recipes because you don’t really need all that extra fat, a little goes a long way with tahini.
