You may remember this lemon garlic hummus from these delicious lettuce wraps, but there are a couple extra toppings if you want to serve as a dip!

The thing with flavoring hummus is that sometimes you feel like a lot of flavor, and sometimes not so much. So I recommend starting with 2 tablespoons of lemon juice and 2 cloves are garlic and then tasting to see if you want more.

It only takes a minute to blend everything up in the food processor!

This is where you should give it a taste and see if you want a stronger lemon or garlic flavor, or maybe a pinch more salt.

Once you finish that, scoop it all in a bowl.

Adding more olive oil as garnish always seems to make people want to dive right in!

Since cumin is my favorite spice, it's no surprise I added it here too.

AND, as long as you have organic lemons, you can grate some of the zest on top too.

Must make this weekend! I have everything including the organic lemons! Homemade hummus is so much better than any store bought version I've tried. Sometimes I add Greek yogurt for a creamier texture and top with extra toasted sesame seeds for crunch.
