This post was inspired by the big ole tub of hummus in my fridge that was about to expire.

Also, you would think my favourite number is 6, because I keep post recipes on groups of six – smoothies, overnight oats, sandwiches, etc. I can’t say I have a favourite number – do you?

Anyways, back to hummus. What is hummus exactly? Hummus is an incredibly popular Middle Eastern dip and spread.

It is typically made by blending chickpeas (garbanzo beans), tahini (ground sesame seeds), olive oil, lemon juice and garlic in a food processor.

Not only is hummus delicious, but it is also versatile and packed with nutrients – fibre, b-vitamins etc to name a few.

Anyways, without further ado – check out my favourite hummus recipes!
