If you are following my posts on a weekly basis, you probably remember my Beet-Red Bean Hummus recipe from last week. As I experimented with quite a few different variations of this heavenly spread, I’ll stick to my new favorite, hummus also this week. I’m sure you still like hummus for its paste-like consistency and heartiness and are eager to try out another exciting version.
