Quick Classic Hummus

I love hummus. It is my go-to snack any time of day that satisfies my salty tooth. (like a sweet tooth but salt you know) My favourite is a basic hummus, with a hint of lemon, and a perfect dose of saltiness.

this recipe is your basic beginner guide to your hummus adventures. If you want to spice it up, I encourage you to do so. I’ll list some more inspiration below for some more creative flavours you can try out!


Dip your carrots, cucumber, crackers, or apple, add it to a quinoa bowl, or on a sammy. The possibilities are endless.

I'd like to consider myself a food and coffee enthusiast. I always get excited to create eat flavourful recipes that fuel my mind and my body. A few of my favourite foods consist of salads (the fun kind), sourdough bread, avocados, and almond butter. My coffee order is an iced americano with oatmilk no matter the weather.
