This is super, super lazy of me. I mean, is throwing a bunch of ingredients in your food processor actually considered cooking? Is this even a real recipe? So many questions. So much hummus. Hummus is my go-to recipe when I totally don’t feel like cooking. It’s a recipe without the effort, you know? It’s a no-brainer.

And, is it bad to admit I didn’t even go food shopping for this one? I literally just snooped around my cabinets, found two cans of ingredients, and decided yup! This will do. I really go the extra mile for you guys.
It never ceases to amaze me just how much crap I cram into my kitchen. My entire apartment is the size of a MacBook Air, yet somehow I manage to live out an episode of Hoarders in my kitchen. Not in a gross way, of course. But, does anyone need 15 spatulas from the 99 cent store? Seems fairly useless. Or the collection of Bed Bath & Beyond receipts that I save just in case I find time to bring them back to the store and use with a coupon?
If you aren’t doing it already, you guys need to be eating more white beans. They’re mellow in taste and they blend up into the creamiest, smoothest texture; it's total perfection. Obviously, sun-dried tomatoes are divine, so their flavors rock out here, and the lemon juice adds a nice touch of tang, too. Best of all? This is a 4-ingredient, 5-minute snack!
Is there anything more perfectly simple than that?
