Hummus is a tasty dip that’s made appearances across supermarkets and restaurants everywhere over the past couple years. While this versatile bean dip might seem complicated to make, it’s actually very simple and requires just a few ingredients.

Did you know chickpeas (or garbanzo beans) are one of the oldest consumer drops in the world? And for good reason! Chickpeas are a great source of plant-based protein, fiber, iron, zinc, B vitamins and more.
