A classic and the best hummus recipe that you can make in just 5 minutes. Dip a chip or fresh raw vegetables and enjoy it with individual portions.
Hummus is one of the best snacks to keep in your fridge, in my opinion. Because in addition to enjoying it with chips or pita bread, fresh raw vegetables taste great when dipped in hummus.
Don’t you agree? Isn’t it a good way to eat more vegetables?

You can certainly get creative with your hummus by adding extra ingredients in it. Take the Smoky Chipotle Hummus as an example, a couple chipotle peppers in adobe sauce makes a huge difference. However, in this post, I included a very basic, yet probably the best hummus recipe I’ve ever come across. You seriously can’t go wrong with this recipe!

As mentioned, other than enjoying hummus with chips, I like dipping vegetables in it and I recommend you give it a try if you haven’t yet.
