Green Herbed Hummus

Dave and I are huge hummus fans.  We eat a quart of hummus just about every week.  Our top favorites are this recipe for Green Herbed Hummus, Roasted Garlic Hummus[1], and Roasted Red Pepper Hummus[2] (the classics, right?).  We also rotate in Beet Hummus[3], Zucchini Hummus[4], and Broccoli Hummus when we need a break from the chickpeas.

Hummus is a great snack or component to a fabulous lunch!  Full of protein, good fats, antioxidants, it provides you with fuel! :)  We’ll eat with zucchini and celery sticks or served over a bed of spinach.  Mmm mmm good!
