Easy Hummus

Hummus is a proof that some of the best things are the easiest to make. 

It's a great starter, side, dip, lunch, snack, spread — you name it! I think the first time I actually acknowledged hummus, and how simple it is making yourself, was at a picnic in Melbourne not that long ago, where I lived for three years and did my undergrad. And I also have a crazy story where a huge bucket of hummus is involved. It apparently became the centre of attention at a party I once attended. Don't ask me why. Hummus makes for good fun and a snack, I can tell you. 

I can recommend making these soft and yummy pita breads to go with your hummus.
