Ahhh hummus. Is there any better dip? It pairs perfectly with so many things… veggie sticks, crackers, rice cakes, macro bowls or just on its own. I used to buy endless 1kg tubs that would see us through the fortnight. But with store-bought hummus containing preservatives, I really wanted to make my own.

It took me a little while to get the right mix of ingredients. But hubby and I both agreed that this variation is 100% perfect. It takes all of 5 minutes to whip it up and it’s soooo much cheaper to do it yourself.

P.S I cannot stress the importance of using a very small clove of garlic!! #garlicbreath
