In my opinion, hummus is the perfect dip. It’s nutritious, filling, and compatible with most dip-able foods. (Guacamole comes close, but dipping carrots in guac just doesn’t feel right.) With garbanzo beans as its primary ingredient, hummus is packed with protein, carbohydrates and fiber, which makes it a great snack in between meals or after a workout. Plus, it’s super easy to make your own, and often tastes better homemade! With this recipe as a foundation, you can experiment with additional toppings and spices. Happy snacking!
