The Best Ever Homemade Hummus

Hummus is such a delicious snack. But I don’t like to buy it because it is so much cheaper to make at home. Homemade hummus is a frugal and easy snack to make. And this hummus is so much better than store bought. It is creamy and delicious. Making it a recipe that should be made over and over again.

My daughter is always asking me to make hummus. She loves this homemade hummus with crackers. And ever since she tasted a sample (pre-COVID of course) at a grocery store, she loves this on a wrap for lunch. On the tortilla wrap she likes hummus, ham and pickled asparagus. This is something that is a staple for her school lunches. So if you or your child likes hummus, I highly recommend spreading hummus on a wrap for lunch. So delicious!

This recipe produces a delicious and creamy hummus. The texture is smooth as well as the taste. My husband says that this is the best hummus that he has ever had. So if you like the best hummus that is super tasty, you should try this homemade hummus!

“A Psalm of Thanksgiving. Make a joyful shout to the LORD, all you lands! Serve the LORD with gladness; come before His presence with singing. Know that the LORD, He is God; it is He who has made us, and not we ourselves; we are His people and the sheep of His pasture. Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, and into His courts with praise. Be thankful to Him, and bless His name. For the LORD is good; His mercy is everlasting, and His truth endures to all generations.”

Psalm 100
