Hummus without Tahini

I’ve tried hummus with tahini before, but I’ve never liked it that much, I think its because it feels to rich or strong, so for years I’ve made it without and most people prefer my version.  I made this today and my blender decided to pack up so I was stuck mashing it by hand! I got a good workout, but my hard-work paid off!

 

This recipe is light and lemony and hits the spot 🙂 perfect for dipping vegetables and for sandwiches!
