Hummus and me!

Hummus is one of my favorite “go to” foods when I looking for a snack and is a great source of protein for vegans and vegetarians.  I like to dip in with plain rice crackers which tastes delicious with hummus.  Hummus can be used in wraps in place of mayonnaise, or used as a dip with your favorite veggie or taco chip.  Here are the ingredients that you will need to whip up a batch of hummus.  I like lots of garlic so adjust the amount you use to suit your taste.
