Notes

I love hummus, it's one of those easy to make good for you snack. Plus, you can dress it up any way you like. I worked as a waitress in an Israeli Cafe' for three years, and I learned about how important it is to make your own fresh hummus. Ready? Ok let's get started!

My Help Yourself Hummus is loaded with fresh lemon and garlic to bring out that mediterranean earthiness. It's topped with a roasted red pepper puree to add a smoky sweetness and to keep you scooping for more.
