Hummus is a staple in my diet… I pretty much eat it every single day and contrary to popular opinion I think it is good on almost anything. Of course there is the obvious, a dip for veggies and crackers or a spread for a sandwich or a wrap but I often times add a spoonful to the top of my salad or the side of my cooked veggies. With every new batch you make you can add a different spice or throw in some cooked veggies to give it a whole new flavor. Enjoy!
