The Best Hummus Recipe

 

We served this hummus in our Greek restaurant for 10 years and received rave reviews from our guests. It’s creamy, garlicky, tangy from the fresh lemon juice. Everything that great hummus should be!

    hi: in the hummus recipe you mention three roasted garlic but you don’t include it n the procedure. I suppose it goes in together with the fresh, no? I love hummus but never thought of the roasted garlic to tone down the raw one.

    I have made your recipe a few times. It is so good. I made your greek flatbread to have with it. My husband and I enjoyed this for dinner. We couldn’t stop eating it until it was all gone. It’s easy to make and tastes so much better than store bought. Thank you!
