8 Variations of Homemade Hummus

– Alyson Weber

Sure, buying hummus at the grocery store is easy and tastes pretty good. But after you make your own, you’ll never buy hummus again.. Homemade  tastes better, has no artificial preservatives, and is super easy to make! If you have the basic, and not to mention cheap, ingredients to make homemade hummus (i.e. canned chickpeas, lemon juice, tahini, garlic) you can make it anytime you want. Once you got the basics down, you can venture off and try these unique varieties!

Prepare your taste-buds for an amazing depth of smoky flavor from the roasted red peppers in this hummus. Don’t worry though, you don’t have to roast a red pepper yourself. Most grocery stores carry roasted red peppers in a jar that taste just the same. Get the recipe here.
