Yummy Hummus

I know my hubby loves making some fresh guacamole every now and then as do a lot of other people. Well, what about some fresh hummus?!

Any of these ingredients could be purchased at the grocery store, but what about if you had some of these ingredients picked from the garden?!

Not only could the ingredients you make the hummus with, be from a garden, but you could even use fresh picked veggies to dip in the hummus!

  • cucumbers
  • bell peppers
  • broccoli florets
  • carrots
  • cherry tomatoes

Other side options to dip in your hummys is

  • Stone ground chips
  • Lentil Black Bean Crackers

I was graced yet again by a homemade hummus at work, which encourages me to be able to go grocery shopping for some fresh ingredients to make Hummus myself, right in the kitchen. The hummus that was made was wonderful so wanted to share the ingredients used for this particular flavor of hummus.


  • (2) 15 ounce cans of chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1/4 cup Tahini paste (ground sesame seeds)
  • Juice of 1/2 to 1 lemon
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon of cayenne pepper
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 2 to 4 tablespoons water (or as needed to make the consistency you want)

Now obviously with the ingredients listed above you can get a little fancy yourself with the flavor you want to taste. As we know there are different flavors of hummus out there. YOU have the freedom to create it in your own kitchen!
