Basic Hummus

It’s no secret that I love hummus. Over the years, I’ve shared many variations with you: pizza hummus, guaca-hummus, spicy pumpkin hummus, cauliflower hummus, miso hummus.

But I’ve never shared my simple, basic hummus recipe. I make this all the time and just love it. You can add more flavours if you want, but it’s wonderfully delicious all on its own.
