I feel like hummus has become my new staple snack for any occasion: after school, at parties or get togethers, and sometimes it’s even lunch. It’s simple, naturally vegan, healthy, and you can pretty much use anything as a dipper and it’s delicious. Hummus can get expensive when you buy it at the grocery all of the time and it can get, let’s face it, BORING. I decided to start making my own because it gives me the freedom to experiment with any flavor combinations I’m in the mood for that week, it’s cheaper, and it’s definitely yummier. I made a classic version for snacks this week, and I’ll probably bring some to my parent’s football party tomorrow as well. As long as you have food processor or a blender, you can make some too in about 5 minutes! I serve it in a decorative bowl (because it’s beige) and top with sprinkle of everything but the bagel seasoning and whatever spice you used in your recipe, this time it was smoked paprika.
