We love eating hummus and what better way to eat it than home made hummus! This is a healthy green twist on hummus with the addition of hummus. When we buy store bought hummus, there is usually a lot of extra ingredients that are not needed in addition to loads of salt. At least at home, you can control the salt intake as well as the ingredients in it.

Combine this with any vegetable or chip of your liking. It makes an excellent snack and even a main meal.
