Once you have had homemade hummus, the stuff you buy in the store tastes acrid. I’m not exaggerating! The other day, I was completely exhausted and starving, so I picked up some hummus at the store along with some bread, cheese, and tomatoes. I got home, toasted my bread, melted cheese on it sliced up the tomatoes, smeared on hummus, drizzled on olive oil and took a big fat bite and immediately spit it out. I thought the hummus had gone bad and checked the sell by date, but nope! Store bought hummus is just nowhere near as good homemade and now I am totally spoiled. The hardest part about this recipe will be cleaning your blender. So painless, so tasty, SO WORTH IT.
VERDICT: EXTREMELY WORTH IT.
