So, I’ve basically been living under a rookie culinary rock the past….lifetime…because I’ve never made my own hummus. I KNOW, shameful for a food + lifestyle blogger. don’t.judge.me.

The only thing that’s ever held me back from making hummus myself is honestly the food processor. I’m still scarred from making a massive batch of cauliflower rice years ago, where the clean up was so horrendous with flying cauliflower everywhere. and my cute little beach shack really lacks storage space, so my 192387 pound food processor is always a hassle to lug out from a super high cabinet. Now that I sound like the laziest person ever, and you know the only thing ever standing in my way from hummus heaven was a kitchen gadget, let’s cut to the chase…this freaking incredibly delicious, flavorful double bean hummus that was a total “let’s just throw this all in” experiment gone right.
