How to Make Easy Hummus FREE Recipe
by Kristin Omdahl

Learn how to make this simple, healthy and delicious snack at home! It is healthier and more affordable to make it yourself! Serve it with fresh veggies and crackers, or use it as a delicious sandwich spread. You can’t go wrong with hummus! Change it up with different garnishes, too! I love to sprinkle chopped pimento, olives or green onions on top.
