Homemade Hummus with Crackers|
Nothing special here, just my favorite basic Hummus recipe coming through. Every vegetarian/vegan food blog needs its own chickpea spread recipe, so here it is. It’s super simple, super easy and super basic, nothing too fancy but it sure tastes amazing! Whenever I have friends coming over, I serve this hummus with homemade crackers. It’s excellent to bring to BBQs and parties too!

Hummus allows so many variances like mix in some coriander or tomatoes, paprika, olives, beets, pumpkin,… The possibilities for giving it a new twist each time seem endless :)

Making the chickpea spread couldn’t be any easier. Just throw everything together in your food processor or blender and blend until smooth. And ready is your Hummus – perfect for dipping, for spreading on bread slices or whatever you have planned.
