Homemade Hummus YUMMO!

You can buy this appetizer pre-made at any grocery store, but this homemade version is so much better and it makes a lot. Serve it up with warm pita bread, pita chips, or fresh and colorful veggies. Try adding roasted red peppers for a fun variation.

• 1/4 cup(s) tahini

• 1/3 cup(s) olive oil

• 2 lemon(s)

• 3 clove(s) garlic
