Easy Homemade Hummus

Easy Homemade Hummus

My Greek adventure started when our family visited a restaurant at Pismo that offers delectable Greek food (check out our visit to Pismo Beach).  The all-time favorite spread and dip for the family is Hummus.  Whether you’re making it for a super bowl game, a birthday party or just ordinary appetizer, Hummus is a win.  Though it is available at any grocery store, home-made hummus is still much better.  The choice for flavors is in your hands and you know that the freshness of the ingredients is present.

While we are fond of this dip, Richard and I made Hummus from scratch.

Nothing tastes better than the freshness of an earthy and nutty flavor of tahini and lemon.
