Ok, sure it’s easy enough to buy hummus at your local grocery store but most people don’t realize how easy hummus is to make at home without all the extra “stuff” that often comes with buying from the store. This basic hummus recipe is a great example!
A staple in Middle Eastern cuisines, hummus is a healthy, protein-loaded dip that can be served with pita wedges or chips, raw vegetables or crackers.
While this is a basic hummus recipe, hummus is very adaptable. By adding in vegetables or herbs, you can easily create a hummus that suits your tastes (see variations at end of the recipe).
I love eating hummus with a few pita chips as a late afternoon snack. It’s filling and nutritious!
