Store bought hummus is great if you are in a super rush. I prefer to make my own. I then have full control of the ingredients. The other thing is when I do buy store bought hummus, I always end up doctoring it up: more lemon, paprika, olive oil, salt etc. So, I make my own.
You can make it with whatever variation of vegetable you like: Eggplant, Garlic, Beets, Artichoke, Sun Dried Tomatoes- your call.
I chose red pepper this time around!
