It takes 5 minutes to prepare this delicious hummus at home. The video below is a demonstration on how to create this easy, good for you snack:
As you can see in the video, I don’t use paprika or parsley on my hummus. It looks amazing if you are preparing this to serve at a party or for dinner guests. Also, for convenience I always put my olive oil into the mixture when blending.
CORRECTION: I said this serves 4 people, it actually serves 8.
