Lemon Dill Hummus

 

I never realized how easy making my own hummus could be! And it eclipses store-bought hummus in taste. Simply add all the ingredients to a food processor and voila-you have a creamy, flavorful dip everyone will love. As you know, we’re on a bit of dill kick over here, so I added that and lemon juice to amp up the flavor. You could use any herb or flavor that you love-basil, chives, roasted red peppers, and sun-dried tomatoes are all great flavor boosters. Here’s how it came together:
