Some wonderful friends of ours make the most divine hummus and while mine falls short in comparison, I will never buy store bought again.

This is a recipe without Tahini and you can always add it, but in my house, we prefer it without it!

We love to snack on hummus with Gluten Free Crackers, Cucumbers, and Cut Sweet Peppers. It’s also delicious on wraps, on salads and MORE.
