Classic Chickpea Hummus

Chickpea hummus

This here is one of my favourite snacks to throw together really quick – a delicious and creamy hummus!

You can dip fresh cut vegetables in it, scoop it up with some crackers or corn chips, spread it on toast, add it to a grain bowl, or spread it on a wrap.

You can spice up this simple recipe as well, by adding either fresh chopped dill, fresh chopped parsley, blending in cayenne or jalapeño, and more. The options are endless! I hope you enjoy this.
