Really good hummus is another food that health food stores have begun to realize people will pay a small fortune for, but you don’t have to fall for that. Hummus is really easy to make at home in your blender, and it’s also easy to customize as you go if you want special flavors. All you need to make hummus at home is a handful of ingredients. Try this for starters, and you can customize as you like: 2 cans of chickpeas, 2 garlic cloves, 6 tablespoons of lemon juice, 6 tablespoons of tahini (you can use peanut butter if you don’t have tahini, but cut the amount in half as it’s very sweet), salt to taste, and ¼ cup of extra-virgin olive oil. You can later add paprika, chili flakes, or other spices to your liking.
