You knew hummus was a great snack, but did you know you can make a meal out of it? Indeed. With just a few toppings, this will become your favorite literal-whip-up dish for a hearty and healthy meal.
A few things to note:
Homemade hummus is only good for 24-48 hours.
The key to smooth hummus is to remove the skins from the chickpeas, so use canned chickpeas or work to remove the skins from your home-cooked beans.
If you don’t have fresh pita, use Italian bread, french fries, or even raw onion.
Serve garlic-yogurt and pickled red cabbage on the side.
