Although hummus traditionally has a couple of usual forms, it’s a versatile food that can be modified to any taste. Hummus is (usually) a moderate-protein, moderate-fiber spread that pairs well with other foods (I like it with whole wheat pita bread). Learning to make it at home makes it a particularly good snack option for those who are looking to get away from the donuts and chips approach.
Hummus is Hebrew for chick pea, and some of these recipes do not contain chick peas (and therefore are not hummus). This is still a good guide — and offers some promising suggestions for people like me, who can’t come up with interesting options on our own!
