Whether you’re planning a party or just looking for a nutritious snack during the sugar loaded holidays, this hummus is the perfect appetizer for you. The Caramelized Garlic Infused Oil gives a subtle but powerful garlic flavor while the lemon adds a tangy kick. It is truly a divine combo.
Because this is a no-tahini hummus, using only olive oil and very few ingredients, the quality of the oil is very important. The premium quality of the Ampersand Olive Oil is perfect for keeping this hummus smooth and creamy. It’s also actually vegan by nature, so you can bring it to parties where you’re expecting vegans/vegetarians and it’ll make them happy. Everyone loves a good hummus dip!
