Hummus is a delicious, healthy, and protein packed food. Though, if you buy a lot of it, you'll be left with a hole in your pocket and an overflowing bin full of plastic containers. Because only 9% of plastic get recycled, best to avoid it if possible. If you love fresh, affordable, healthy, and sustainable food, you should make a habit of making your own hummus.

It takes around 5 minutes to make and costs less than half the price of a store bought tub. Not to mention, it just flat out tastes better when made fresh. 


In a food processor, add:

-1 can of garbanzo beans 

-About 3 table spoons of aquafava (the liquid from the can)

-Around 2 table spoons of olive oil

-2 garlic cloves

-Salt to taste

-Spice (cumin, pepper, or chili flakes)

-Half a lemon's worth of juice

-Extra credit: add a scoop of tahini. 


 Puree until smooth and top with a splash of olive oil paprika. Put it in a container, take it everywhere you go, put it on everything, or just eat it with a spoon!
