Hummus

This weekend I made homemade hummus and it was AMAZING! I went with a very basic hummus just to get a general feel for the entire process.  The ingredients for homemade hummus were relatively cheap and I already had most of the ingredients in my pantry. This was also an extremely easy process, just dump everything into your food processor, press on, and you’re done!
