It kind of seemed like this didn't deserve its own post but Dan and I were so pleased of how healthy and resourceful we were when we decided to make our own hummus. Living where we do and being farther from walkable grocery stores, we wanted a snack and had lots of veggies but no dip. Behold - can of chickpeas and the food processor. Unfortunately at the time we didn't have tahini, which I have since ordered a ton of off Amazon, but it still turned out pretty good because the recipes I googled were sans tahini. A cheaper alternative to store-bought and makes you more likely to eat it because it lacks the preservatives to last as long.
