This hummus recipe was the first one I learned to make. It had to be quick n' easy AND provide me with superior snackin' nutrition. Not only do I like to dip it, but the recipe makes a great sandwich spread. You can change the flavors around to what you have in the kitchen. Start with several cups of cooked chick peas. You can use home-made or canned. Add the other ingredients and seasonings..... shuzzz it up with a hand-held blender, a blender or a potato masher. Enjoy!
