We are always looking for ways to add more veggies to our diet. A rule we have in our house is that when it is time for a snack, you can grab something out of the pantry after you have had something out of the fridge. This hummus is so easy to make and keep on hand- it makes me happy to see the kids reach for this when their bellies come calling!

What is tahini?

We don’t use tahini for our specific recipe, but it is ground up sesame seeds. You can find tahini in most grocery stores. It can be fairly expensive, and we have found that our recipe tastes delicious using the seeds and allowing the blender to create our own!

What goes with hummus?

This is a very versatile recipe and can be used as a dip or spread. We dip veggies in it, use it as a “sauce” for pizzas, and spread it on hummus or crackers!
