Why make your own hummus when you can buy any flavor at most stores for very little money? One reason… Flavor! While the store brands are pretty good, fresh hummus is so much better and really easy to make. In 10 minutes you can have the freshest batch of hummus that will put those store brands to shame! Plus, no extra chemicals or preservatives😀
