Hummus is a simple dip which is pretty versatile. If you love protein rich diet,this is one recipe which does not let you down.It can be made in a jiffy, tastes great.It is easy to use and feels light.It has goodness of olive oil and sesame seeds in its Tahini paste.

All you need is some pita bread, salad or whole wheat dinner rolls.

That’s it and you are set.It is great for a picnic basket too.

Chickpeas is a must for vegans and vegetarians.Yummy!

You can avoid Tahini if you are allergic to sesame.

It took me a long time to try this recipe.Much coaxing by my bestie.However, now there is just no looking back.I love it and this is my go to dip always.I love the richness of the dip.Adding grilled veggies is a great way to give it flavors.

Tastes great with even Tandoori roti.I can even eat it just as is.

Kids love it without you going for too many ingredients.You do not need to fall back on a high calorie cheese butter routines.Great way to make them eat a salad.

In fact, anyone who hates eating a salad can start loving it.That of course includes me 🙂
