It took me a while to get on-board with hummus. Matt loves it and makes it a lot and I just kept trying and trying. Now I'd certainly say I love it. And its so quick and easy to make at home. The prices at the stores are a scandal.

It is quick and easy to make at home. You are so right the prices for Hummus at the supermarket are outrageous! :)

Yes...just the push I needed to make some today...will try your recipe, it looks lovely.
Shop-bought dips are full of yucky additives too :*(

Good Morning Prairieharmony, We absolutely love houmous in this household. I notice there is a difference in the spelling between American and English. When I lived in Cyprus I used to use olive oil from olives we harvested from our trees. They were then pressed locally in the village in which we lived, so the quality of the olive oil was superb. In my view, nothing tastes as good as home made. Have a lovely day today. Best Wishes Daphne

Hello Daphne, What a treat to use your own olives for oil. I'm sure that hummus was delicious. Interesting the different spelling between English and American. I'm always fascinated by the different terms and words for things of the same meaning. Have a great day :)
