Hummus is something I only recently became obsessed with. For the longest time I thought it looked kind of gross and mushy. I couldn’t imagine that it would taste good on or in anything. I can’t remember exactly when I tried it. I think it was in a wrap, cleverly disguised among the rest of the ingredients. Realizing that it wasn’t as nasty as I thought it would be, I decided to do a dip test. Now, I dip so much stuff into a bowl of hummus that my dipper serves solely as a vehicle to the hummus.
This month, through the Secret Recipe Club, I was assigned the blog The Tasty Cheapskate. I was immediately intrigued by her Cheap Eat Challenge. The goal was to feed her family on $6.00 a day. One of the recipes she featured in this series was her Lemon Garlic Hummus. Knowing that I did not have to run out to buy an extensive amount of ingredients was a real treat. I also got the chance to make one of my favorite appetizers. Score!
I made a double batch because I knew the first batch would be gone before the photos were even processed. I know that hummus is healthy when made with the right ingredients but the mass quantities that I consume are certainly not what one would consider a normal serving.
This recipe is incredibly easy. It’s definitely going into my rotation. Enjoy!
