We don’t really like to title our recipes with “best-ever-recipe-you’ll-ever-need-like-forever-for-the-rest-of-your-life” but this creamy basic hummus and creamy avocado hummus and creamy beet hummus recipe by our dear fellow foodie Eliane is about to win that title. It honestly is real food meets slightly fancy-impress-your-guests food. Best part: made from scratch, quick and easy and loaded with good-for-you ingredients. This is so tummy-rumbly-we’re-gonna-eat-the-whole-thing good. So we say thank you for giving us life with this recipe, Eliane! And now, we think all you lovely people out there should go make this silky smoothness and fank her foo. Sorry, mouth full!
