Homemade Hummus

      Hummus is naturally vegan (except for in the rare case that yogurt is added, this is something you may want to keep in mind). It is also absolutely delicious, good for you, and all around fun to eat. It is also very expensive when bought from the store.

      As the main goal of this blog is to help you learn how to eat healthy with a healthy budget, I stress the importance of making your own food.  Buying the ingredients may seem like a big chunk of money, but it will last much longer than going out to eat (especially if you are eating vegan, those restaurants tend to be pretty pricey).

      Also, homemade hummus will be much healthier than store-bought hummus due to the lack of preservatives and extra sweeteners that the producers tend to add.

Anyways, here is my recipe!

  1. Simply combine the above ingredients in a food processor or blender, add either a little bit of water or liquid from the can of chickpeas, and blend it all together.
  2. Taste it and adjust the seasonings to your liking.
  3. Enjoy with pita chips, carrots, broccoli, or any other kind of vegetable or bread!
