Hummus is such a versatile dish. Use it as dip on a charcutarie board, crudite platter, or to a snack with veggies for a protein boost. Add it as a spread to sandwiches or wraps, or mix it into salads as a flavor enhancer to the dressing. This recipe is flavorful and so easy. Just dump everything into a food processor, and let it do all the work. While tahini is traditional in hummus, there is an option to go tahini free as well, for those who don’t have that unique ingredient at home.
