I love hummus. I love this recipe. I mean LOVE. It's one of those things I could eat straight out of the bowl.
No pita chips necessary. Although, that crunchy + creamy combo makes me oh so happy.
My girlfriends mom gave me this one a long time ago and I've been tweaking it over the years. It's that good, and good for ya. Did I mention the best part... It's by far the simplest thing to make. Seriously, like throw it all in your Vita Mix or food processor and BAM, it's done. There are so many variations of this delicious Middle Eastern dip,
but the two versions I love best are lemon, shocker I know, and avocado.

Give this one a try next time you've got a craving for hummus or were asked to bring an appetizer to the party. 
Once you make your own, you'll never buy store bought again. NEVER. Trust me.
You'll taste the freshness + difference immediately.

Put all ingredients into your vita mix or food processor and blend until creamy. That's it. Done.
