Easy Hummus Recipe
There’s nothing like fresh hummus~so tasty!
Are you going to any holiday gatherings soon where you need to bring some appetizers? Want something quick to throw together that doesn’t taste so quick? This might be the perfect recipe for you!
Hummus is a great way to get protein and a great dip for your raw veggies. When I first saw thought about eating hummus, I thought this should be eaten with crackers only. I had only eaten it a couple of time before in junior high. Then I had to shift my paradigm when I saw hummus pictured with vegetables. Of course this would be great with vegetables! The more ways I can get vegetables in for my family, the better.
This recipe is adapted from the Vitamix Whole Foods Recipes Book. I haven’t been a big fan of chickpeas in the past, so I prefer LOTS of garlic to cover the taste of them. It works! This is a great dip, and I have to admit now that the chickpeas are growing on me…

- 1/4 cup lemon juice
- 1 T extra virgin olive oil
