I have been sharing a few recipes here, but haven't explained why. My family is taking a little journey to cleaner eating, my husband went vegan for the first 4 months of the year and the whole family has changed our eating style. Less processed food, more organic and local produce. Part of this journey includes making things from scratch that we used to buy. One of those things is Hummus...and I am beginning to get a reputation! This is my most requested dish...and recipe.
My mom and I went in together and purchased a 5 lb bag of dried Garbanzo beans from a wonderful farm in Washington. You simply soak the beans overnight, then boil them for 2-3 hours, but you can use canned as well...
