This is the Best Roasted Garlic Hummus you will ever try!
I’m serious, this recipe will put every store bought variety to shame.
YOU are going to love how fresh it tastes along with how the roasted garlic really brings out all the flavors.
If you’re tired of those expensive store bought varieties and thought that was the stuff! Well your in for a surprise.
Plus making this at home will save you a lot of hard earned cash.
Let’s be honest it costs anywhere from $4 to $6 dollars for a 350 grams of hummus in the stores.
But making it at home this way, will cost you under $1.00 for that same amount hummus.
CAN YOU FREEZE HUMMUS
Absolutely, I do it all the time. I will make a big batch and store some in the fridge for my family. Which lasts us up to a week in an air tight container.
Then I will section some off for the freezer, for movie nights, game nights and snacks.
There is always hummus in our fridge or freezer.
THIS IS WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE FROZEN, BE SURE TO DEFROST!
WHAT TO EAT WITH HUMMUS
