Mushroom Hummus

I made this hummus as part of a recipe for a holiday party that I'll share with you tomorrow. I haven't had hummus in awhile, but I did have all the ingredients I needed to make it so it seemed like the best plan of action!

This was definitely the best hummus I've ever made. The flavor was absolutely fantastic. Eating this plain with some pita is pretty much the best snack! I'm just realizing now that I don't have a picture of just the hummus--I only have a picture of what was brought to the party. So you'll see it tomorrow!
