Pink beetroot hummus + secrets to a delicious homemade hummus!

For a long ime we tried making our own hummus and we were always disappointed… It was good but… we still wanted to go back and get the store-bought version!! It was so sad to prefer the industrial to the home made!!

But it all changed when we discovered the 3 secrets to a good hummus :

  1. Use DRIED chickpeas and let them soak all night (I know, it’s not a last minute recipe anymore but trust me it changes everything!)
  2. If your hummus is too think don’t add oil, add col water and/or lemon juice
  3. Don’t be lazy with the tahini!
