Easy Classic Hummus

Once you make this easy classic hummus from scratch, you’ll think twice before buying store-bought hummus again–it’s that delicious.

The Backstory: Easy classic hummus is surprisingly simple to make and there are very few ingredients in this tasty dish.  It also stores well when refrigerated and even though you can find it in just about every supermarket in the U.S., once you make it from scratch, you might find that you start doing so more often–it’s really that simply to do. More of the Backstory after the recipe

…The Backstory continues: Hummus actually dates back to ancient times.  I read that it was introduced to Syrian Jews by their Arab neighbors.  Naturally, as in most foods that we eat today,  people from all walks of life brought their favorite recipes when they migrated to different countries.. How lucky we are to be able to savor the abundance of delicious recipes today. Enjoy this with warm pita, some fresh lemon, and  a swoosh of olive oil.
