Hummus is a great addition to any meal but it is also the perfect snack to combine with any vegetable that you choose.  Great source of fiber and other health benefits and you can combine up to fill you up but not break down your diet.

-3 tbsp fresh lemon juice
-2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
-3/4 tsp salt
-1/4 tsp black pepper

The How To:

-Add other ingredients from list to paste as needed.
