Make you own Hummus!

I really enjoy sharing recipes with my friends. This time I’ve made Gopala’s and Angel’s Hummus recipe, my friends are a family of 6, all Vegan, so Hummus is a very important part of their diet!  Additional to it’s nutritional value (filled with protein and essential fats) it’s delicious and kids love it.
