“Homemade hummus is great for a quick, after work snack or to use as a spread on a wrap filled with roasted veggies and spinach. Whichever you choose, this recipe is quick, healthy, and delicious. We used to go through a twelve ounce container of hummus a week; either spreading it on a sandwich or simply dipping pita chips after a long day in the kitchen. Once we discovered this easy recipe, there was no going back to the store bought tubs. Harissa is a great chili and spice mixture, but if you can’t find it at your local grocer, you can easily substitute an Asian chili paste and add a few additional spices like cumin and coriander.” – Joe
