Hummus

I read an article in the new AllRecipes.com magazine about making stuff homemade vs. buying it, and how it compares taste-wise and cost-wise. It said that homemade hummus was the best and was lots cheaper, so I gave it a try. It was easy (and cheap), but I just couldn’t get it as creamy as store-bought hummus! It tasted pretty good, but the texture just wasn’t quite right.

    Adding a tiny bit of water can help the consistency, makes it a bit creamier…i’ve still to crack the perfect hummus though :/

    Hi there, In Israel and all over the Middle East – Hummus is a basic, staple food in its basic form (feel free to visit my new blog here and view my recipe). But over the past decade or so it has become only the base for so many delicious, nutritious recipes.
