We’re in the thick of a heat wave and I feel like I’m melting.  I knew I shouldn’t turn the oven on the other day to bake dessert for a crowd of people but I did it anyway.  The result?  I was a hot sticky mess and even a mojito couldn’t cool me off.

I’ll be keeping the oven off for the duration of this heat wave, which is supposed to last another four days.  If you don’t hear from me for a while, it’s because I really did melt Wicked Witch of the West style!

Let’s talk about this Lemon Hummus now, because it’s the star of the day.  As much as I love this hummus I felt funny posting it because there are so many hummus recipes out there and quite possibly people aren’t as excited about it as I am.

I knew I needed to share this recipe with you because it’s my go-to dip right next to my Homemade Guacamole.  This lemon hummus recipe also takes 5 minutes to make.

Are you sensing a theme here?

I love making healthy dips on a whim for a movie night or when guests are coming over.  Both of my favorites are quick and easy and I always have ingredients on hand to make them…you just never know when you’ll get a snack attack!

This lemon hummus may sound simple, but it’s packed with amazing fresh flavor.  My family loves this hummus and feel great about serving it because it’s so healthy.  My boys helped me devour this platter for lunch after my photo shoot….I love having them home for the summer. πŸ™‚

The best part about this Lemon Hummus is that it’s great for dipping or spreading on sandwiches or wraps (see my Greek Wraps for inspiration)!

The other great thing?  It’ll help you beat the heat.

Recipe Notes:

  1. If you like a creamier hummus, add 1-2 more tablespoons of oil.
  2. I love fresh rosemary and used 1 1/2 tablespoons here.  There’s no overdoing it where I’m concerned!
  3. Store leftover hummus in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days.
