Hummus is served almost as much as guac at Super Bowl parties…

As a spread on my lunchtime sandwiches…

As a light dinner with sauteed mushrooms and onions…

And you should too!

You can buy some great hummus, but it is even better when you make your own. Watch how I make my favorite Lemon Lover's Hummus here.
