Do you ever get hungry for perfect garlicy, smooth, classic homemade hummus? This is one of our family’s favorite treats. My kids go bonkers over dips and this one is a favorite. Even the two little guys love hummus. With my Blendtec it’s a breeze to whip up to smooth perfection.

Hummus makes a great base for an afternoon snack, party platter, packed lunch, or anytime treat. Since we’re gluten-free we skip the pita and dip our homemade hummus in veggies, organic corn chips, homemade or store-bought gluten free crackers, or any of the fun grain-free dippers on this page.
I typically soak and cook my own beans in large batches. I then freeze them so I can pull out a bag whenever I need them. This is the cheaper and healthier way to go, but if you’re in a hurry and don’t have any beans on hand, you can snag a can of beans at the store and this recipe will turn out just as good.
A great way to make hummus part of a whole meal is to serve it with grilled chicken, a colorful veggie tray including carrots, cucumber, celery, peppers, snap peas, or any of your favorite veggies, and gluten-free crackers. This would make an easy, no-fuss and family-friendly dinner!
