Technically, this isn't hummus, because there's no tahini in it, but it's a nice smooth spread/dip, and makes a good sandwich, wrap, or cracker topping. I like it with Greek flatbread.

Very Good 4.7/5

This is the most basic of the spreads. You can find a variation of this recipe in almost any grocery store, but 95 percent of them are made with either olive oil or tahini (sesame paste), which pushes up the fat content. Your best bet is to take three minutes and make a batch on Sunday that will last you for the week.
