Creamy Chickpea Hummus

This hummus is creamy and dreamy with just the right amount of garlic!

Where are my hummus fans at?? Nothing beats a homemade hummus and after making this last batch I needed to publish the recipe. Too good not to share!!! 

There are a million recipes out there with an equal amount of variations and methods. Find the one that works for you but let me tell ya, this one is creamy, dreamy and beyond delicious. 

*You can make this recipe with canned chickpeas but I HIGHLY recommend the dried-cooked chickpea method. Sure it takes a little longer but the results are just awesome.

This hummus is creamy and dreamy with just the right amount of garlic. I highly recommend cooking chickpeas from scratch but this recipe would also work with canned or jarred chickpeas.
