30 Semi-Healthy Days – Day 6: Kalamata & Artichoke Hummus

DSC_0812_2

My husband and I eat a LOT of hummus. I am not exaggerating even a little bit when I say that. We eat pretzels and hummus just about every single day before dinner, and our favourite hummus has kalamata olives and artichoke hearts in it. It’s one that we always find at Sprouts, but it comes in such a little container that it usually only lasts us about 2 days. I decided today that I am tired of buying hummus every 2 days and that I should just try to recreate it at home. Turns out, hummus is super easy to make and WAY better when made at home than bought from the store. This turned out to be so good, and it made quite a lot so it should last us at least 3 days this time around.

I will definitely be making hummus at home more often now that I know how much better it is and how simple it is. All you do is throw a bunch of ingredients in the food processor and voila! Perfect homemade hummus that will impress even the biggest hummus snobs you know.
