Hummus Recipe

Hummus is a protein-rich dip that you would love to eat. You can dip baby carrots, cucumber slices, celery sticks or slices of red or yellow bell pepper or serve this as a side dish along with pita bread. This is a very basic recipe – you can vary the amount of garlic and spice, or mix in diced peppers or other vegetables you think taste great with hummus. Here is our Hummus Recipe which you can make at home.
