Okay guys, so let me just tell you that I'm seriously all about the hummus! Are you big fans of it?
I especially love that you can easily make it with different kinds of beans or peas and with or without tahini.
So you can switch it up based on the ingredients you have in your pantry.
Plus it comes together quickly and is the perfect snack or appetizer for any occasion.
And in the southern United States it is thought that eating black-eyed peas on New Years Day would bring you luck.
Well I like to eat them year around. But it's still a fun tradition to eat them then and some how believe they'll make you have a better year!
I think I'm going try a double batch of them next New Years! 😂

Notes and substitutions
Depending on how creamy you like your hummus, you can add a tablespoon of water at a time till you get your desired consistency.
You can substitute the lime juice with lemon juice and the tahini with peanut butter or sunflower seed butter!
If you're not a fan of onions you may want to just leave those out. But I personally recommend them in this hummus recipe since it adds a nice depth of flavor.
