Favorite Lemon Burst Hummus
Hummus is one of my absolute favorite side dishes. On our California road trip we were buying it at least twice a week for our picnics, and as an easy snack option with baby carrots and mini bell peppers. But I have to say, we were only buying it due to a lack of a kitchen and kitchen equipment! Because nothing tastes better than homemade Hummus. I’ve yet to purchase a brand that even scratches the surface of the results you can get in your own kitchen.
So, cards on the table. There’s hummus, and then there’s hummus.
This is one of my favorite hummus twists, along with Sun-Dried Tomato Hummus.
