Garlic and thyme oh my. You know how they say that some things are just better homemade? If you haven’t ever made your own hummus, then you’re seriously missing out on something special. This was my first time making it from scratch. I’ve always bought mine from the grocery store because I was under the impression that it was extremely hard to make. But I have news for you, if you own a food processor then it’s super easy because that’s like all you need. I just love the recipes where you just add the ingredients into one container and done. It’s effortless and the clean-up is a breeze.
Since it was my first time making it I was hesitant on trying some elaborate flavor profile. I mean, let’s be honest, I totally wanted to try something crazy and elaborate but sticking to the basics is how you learn so that’s what I did with this recipe. It turned out so good I just had to share it with you.
Garlic and thyme go so well together; it was like a match made in heaven. Right when you’re done making it you’re going to want to have some but put it in the fridge for about an hour. The longer you let it sit the more flavor comes out from the garlic and thyme. I have one more tip, the instructions say place it in a food processor and blend, that’s what I did which left with a small grainy texture, if that’s not your cup of tea pull out your heavy duty blender and blend away for a smoother texture. I can’t wait for you to try this. Pack it for lunches this week and use carrots, peppers, and jicama to dip! Enjoy.
