Hummus is a Middle Eastern spread made from seasoned mashed chickpeas. I'm going to give you a few different recipes and applications!

Use Hummus in wraps instead of mayo or mustard! And, by simply adding a tablespoon or two of freshly squeezed lemons, your Hummus will peak in taste!

To take a path less traveled for an unusually delicious Hummus spread, try my blend!

Ingredients:

1/4 cup fresh, packed flat parsley. (*remember never to use curley parsley. That's a garnish. Always use FLAT parsley in all your cooking.)

2  tablespoons chopped onion

1  peeled garlic clove

1- 15 ounce can chickpeas or garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained

2  tablespoons cider vinegar

2  teaspoons soy sauce

2 teaspoons lime juice

1 teaspoon honey

1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

1/4  teaspoon each: ground cumin, ginger, coriander and paprika. (If you like the tahini taste of ground sesame seeds, you can add 2 tablespoons of ground sesame seeds.)

dash of Kosher salt

In your processor, first combine the flat parsley, onion and garlic until smooth. Then add the chickpeas, vinegar, soy sauce, lime juice, honey, mustard, and spices. Process until smooth. Enjoy!
