I like to make my own hummus when I can. This is a quick easy recipe, and a nice change from a standard chickpea hummus. It is also a very rich. Below is the basic recipe I use however, you can add different herbs (like parsley, cilantro, basil), spices (like cumin), olives, sun dried tomatoes. . . . The possibilities are endless with how you can flavor this. If needed you can thin the mixture with extra lemon juice or olive oil.
