In college (I went to Miami of Ohio for all my fellow Redhawks reading this!) there was a little supermarket by my sophomore dorm and I remember they had this lemon hummus that I always used to buy, it was THE BEST! Since then, I haven't been able to find anything quite the same, so I decided to scrounge up my own.
Just add this to the list of foods to stop buying at the store and start making at home. This is so easy and the gratification of it being homemade makes it taste that much better. I hope you enjoy this scrounge as much as me!

If you don't have these exact ingredients, Scrounge with the things you have at home and you may create something even better!
If you don't have chickpeas, use garbanzo beans
If you don't have tahini, use sesame seeds
If you don't have olive oil, use avocado oil
If you don't have minced garlic, use half of a garlic clove
If you don't have lemon, have fun and scrounge up your own flavor of hummus!
