Homemade Hummus Without Tahini

I love hummus. It’s a great snack that’s high in protein, fiber, and flavor. I enjoy dipping carrot sticks and pepper wedges in hummus. My husband prefers to dip flatbread in it. And my daughter can’t get enough of tortilla chips with hummus.

As a Costco member, I occasionally buy a bulk container of single-serve hummus cups to give to my family, but these cups get expensive if we can’t find them on sale. To save money, I decided to make my own hummus and see how it compared to the store-bought variety.

And I must say, I love my homemade hummus without tahini even more than the single-serve cups.

Slow Cooker Caramelized Onions

I don’t have the patience to stand around and wait for onions to caramelize while frantically stirring on the stovetop. So I use my slow cooker to do the work for me.
