Saturday afternoon I opened the fridge and realized I was out of hummus…. THE HORROR. I went through a phase my freshman year of college where I ate hummus every. single. day. Then my sophomore through junior year the thought of hummus made me gag.

But now, I am back on the hummus train and I don’t see myself getting off anytime soon!

Wow, that was cheesy.

So, anyways, Saturday I was disappointed in my fridge for alerting me I had no hummus but then I realized…I had a can of chickpeas, lots of lemons, a jar of tahini, and bottle of olive oil. I quickly got out my blender and started throwing things into the blender.

I am really making the hummus process sound way more eventful than it actually is. However, it is pretty exciting to know I have a big batch of creamy hummus to eat all week and there are ZERO weird preservatives or artificial ingredients.

I hope you enjoy!

    That hummus looks delicious! I’m very picky about the kind of hummus that I like to eat (I only like certain brands and certain flavors), so I really should just make my own!
