Hummus is one of our favorite food groups. We love it for bathing raw veggies in flavor, gluing a sandwich together or taking a snack spread to the next level. The nutrient-dense plant-based dip is a healthy, flavorful and supremely adaptive way to boost the overall health factor of just about any meal — and these homemade hummus recipes take it to the next level.
Making hummus at home is a shockingly simple process that ensures that this addictive dip reaches its full nutritional potential. In its most basic form, the blend of chickpeas, lemon and olive oil is an excellent source of protein, healthy fat and fiber. Amped up with fresh herbs, spices and other seasonal ingredients, and hummus is instantly transformed into a total nutrition bomb.
