Every now and then, I get a craving for hummus. And, every time I do, I wonder why I didn’t crave it sooner. It makes for such a delicious, healthy snack – especially paired with some fresh whole wheat pita bread. Hopefully, I’ll have perfected a pita bread recipe in time for next week!
Out of the hundreds of hummus recipes out there, the main ingredients are consistently: chickpeas (garbanzo beans), tahini (sesame paste), lemon juice, and olive oil. Frequently, thought not consistently, featured ingredients additionally include garlic and salt. My recipe differs really only in the mix of spices I use, and some of my preparation methods.
