I’m not going to lie, I have an addiction to condiments. As a Canadian, my love of mayo, gravy and all things saucy is just in my blood. I can’t imagine a world without dipping sauce for pizza, gravy for fries and seasonings for popcorn.
One of my favourite dips is hummus, but I absolutely can’t stand the pre-packaged stuff at the grocery store. It’s always over priced, full of preservatives, and because of that it never tastes right. Making it at home is so easy and a lot healthier. Hummus is full of protein and tastes great on fresh veggies, pita bread or even as a condiment on your favourite wrap, salad or sandwich. Using roasted garlic instead of raw garlic makes the flavours more complex and less harsh which is always welcomed by those around you. Enjoy!
