Classic Greek Hummus

On January 17, 2012

Hummus was one of the first things I ever made.  I remember making it and being like “Jigga what?!  THIS is cooking?  Why do people BUY hummus when they can just do THIS?!?”

It was, and still is the first thing I teach people to make, because let’s get serious people, it’s bananas how simple it is AND it tastes so much better than store bought.

To jazz it up, you can  mix in extras like roasted red peppers, greek olives or herbs like cilantro, parsley or thyme.

Give’r a try and let me know what you think!
