za'atar hummus // kalamata + garlic

za'atar hummus // kalamatas + garlic
Justin and I plow through so much hummus in a week it is kind of embarrassing - it is our snack of choice and I love adding it to my veggie wraps. 

Hummus is also our go to if we are heading to a party or on a road trip and it is something our friends always have on hand for us too. 

I mean you can't really go wrong with hummus, am I right?

Making your own Hummus at home is incredibly easy and you can do it on the cheap.
 It's even less expensive if you  have time to cook up a big batch of dried chickpeas.

Justin absolutely loves kalamata olives - in hummus they add a nice bit of extra salt that he loves.

The za'atar is for me- I love using this spice blend in my hummus. If you can't find or have za'atar on hand  simply omit, the hummus will still be tasty.
