Finally I’m posting the recipe for this absolute staple in my house. While I have posted several similar recipes before, like this white bean hummus and this smokey butter bean hummus, this rendition is more true to its origins with no added frills and made with chickpeas.

This Middle Eastern bean dip can do no wrong in my book. I eat it with almost anything and it makes a delicious snack with just some raw veggies like carrot or cucumber for dipping. You could also serve it along with other dips, bread and veggie dishes for in a vegan mezze – it makes a great dinner party spread.

With that I give you my staple hummus recipe in hoped that you’ll try it, use it and modify it to suit your taste!
