How to Make Hummus -
Using Garbanzo (Chickpea) Bean Flakes
I LOVE hummus! It's so cheap, easy to make, versatile, and comes in a variety of flavors. If you think you don't like hummus you might want to give it another shot. I tried hummus years ago, it was terrible. For years I'd decline anytime someone offered me hummus. A couple of years ago my sister got me to try some, and it was delicious! I was shocked.
I've discovered that hummus, like potato salad, has so many variations that there'll be some you love and some you hate. I found a brand I liked for lunch or snacks but, when I looked at the ingredients, it wasn't as healthy as I'd thought. When I mentioned it to my sister, Sue, she's like "just make your own" and I'm thinking "I don't have time." It turns out that I had everything I needed and it only takes 5 minutes to make!
