Tasty Hummus Recipe

Hummus is such a healthy and delicious staple for all dietary backgrounds!  While it doesn’t require that many ingredients, achieving the right consistency can be quite challenging, especially if you don’t have an ideal food processor.  I was recently gifted a Cuisinart Food Processor and it has been a life changer!  It really pureed the ingredients very well and I was able to get that whipped consistency I crave.  Check out my recipe below!

  • 1 tsp of paprika

  • Turn your food processor on and first add the garlic, pulse until the garlic is super tiny.
