I am a hummus fan and love to make hummus often as it is easy to make a snack, snack style healthy meal, etc. Whether you dip your veggies, falafel, or bread, hummus goes a long way. Trust me, it is easier to pull up an Epic Vegan Mediterranean Grazing Board with hummus and other dips. I love to include seasonal flavors to give a flair to the hummus. Roasted Beet Hummus and Red Bell Pepper hummus are my favorites. Hummus is great as a spread for sandwiches and wraps. Hummus can also be used in dumplings, like in this fusion Hummus Kozhukattai or in waffles (Hummus Waffles)too!
