Making homemade hummus

I used Pompeian Extra Virgin Olive Oil, the first and only extra virgin olive oil to carry the USDA Quality Monitored Seal, to make my own hummus. I really don’t know why I buy hummus at the store because making it at home is so easy once you have the basic ingredients like Pompeian Extra Virgin Olive Oil, a can of garbanzo beans (also called chickpeas), tahini paste, garlic, and salt. Anything else you add to it is up to you! The only other thing you need is a blender or a food processor.

It's so easy to make homemade hummus. Get the recipe for this Spicy Avocado Hummus at This Mama Cooks! On a Diet - thismamacooks.com

Since it’s the holiday season, I thought something green would be appropriate. I love avocados, so why not try an avocado hummus? This appetizer is gluten free, dairy free, vegan, and filled with healthy fats. Hummus also makes a terrific sandwich spread and can be served as a dip with chips or veggies.

    Yum, who doesn’t love hummus? As cheesy as it may be, the personalized bottle would make a good gift for someone if you think about it. A cute wedding gift, with a basket of ingredients and utensils.
