Garlic Hummus

This is SO easy and SOO good! I got the recipe from the book, “Quick and Easy Vegan Comfort Food” and altered it slightly.It’s awesome with carrot sticks, sliced zucchini, cucumbers, or other fresh veggies. I recently took it to a party and it was a big hit (just double or triple the recipe for greater quantity).*Note: You don’t cook this. It just made me enter a cook time, so I put in 1 min. :-)
