Another day in December means another holiday party, am I the only one feeling like this? Hummus (a.k.a yuummus) is a great healthy option for holiday parties. It is a versatile dish and tons of different add-ins and flavor profiles can be created. The base of this recipe is the only hummus you’ll ever need. The toppings are an added bonus. I am so excited for all the holiday parties that come with along with the holiday season. I like using recipes that are ascetically pleasing, quick, cheap and tasty, I mean who doesn’t.


I was a very good girl this year and lucky for me Santa came early. He delivered a beautiful large brown package that had a VITAMIX hiding inside! I have been asking for one for the last 365 days. Apparently, Zach, my boyfriend, got tired of hearing about it, so he got me one, thanks, babe!  I have the low-profile version so it’s easier to fit in my tiny kitchen, it’s not much smaller than the others. If you saw my previous blender you would understand why I’m so amped up about this new one. The old blender was around 16 oz. and turned into a to-go cup. Pretty cool I thought until it started leaking EVERYWHERE. My grandma loves a good bargain. She got it for me from a garage sale where it cost $3. It worked like it was worth $3 too. No worries if you don’t have a Vitamix or a high-speed blender. The only hummus you’ll ever need doesn’t require a Vitamix using one works great, but so does any other blender or food processor unless it was $3 at a garage sale.
