From My Kitchen: Hummus

A few weeks ago, I bought myself a NutriBullet Blender and I have been obsessed with it. Sauce, hummus, smoothies, if you can blend it, I’ve tried to make it. But one of my favorite things to make it hummus. I’ve shared my avocado hummus recipe – and I have plenty more variations I’ve made and want to make up my sleeve. But time and time again I always come back to this traditional recipe. It’s a crowd pleaser and I regularly toss it in a bowl of quinoa with veggies for lunch. Safe to say, I make a batch of this almost once a week.
