How to Up Your Homemade Hummus Game

Words Rebecca Ulanoff

Store-bought hummus can be great, but with homemade hummus you get total control over flavor, consistency, volume, well – everything. Like lemon? Load it in. Gaga over garlic? Get on it. Not crazy about chickpeas? Mix things up with black beans, edamame, or even lentils.

Even better, DIY hummus is easy to whip up, cheap to make, packed with protein, vegan AND gluten-free. Plus, tahini (aka sesame paste) lasts a really, ridiculously long time in your fridge, so, once you buy it, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to experiment.
