Recipe: Deliciously simply homemade hummus


Try something new this year and make your own hummus. Made from five simple ingredients, its name in Arabic literally translates to “chickpeas.” These cream-colored beans are full of protein and rich in fiber. Tahini is ground sesame seed paste that adds creaminess and a distinctive nutty flavor. Hummus can be served with pita bread or used as a dip for raw veggies like carrots, celery and bell pepper slices.
