Hummus is such a versatile and healthy food: serve with raw veggies, spread it on a sandwich, or smear it on grilled chicken for added protein. You can keep a store-bought tub in the fridge, but nothing compares to the taste of homemade hummus. If you're bored with the garlic and lemon flavor of traditional hummus [1], mix things up with one of these unique recipes.
