“I love hummus and this is a luscious, but healthy, version! It's great with pita chips or raw vegetables. Originally from a Bon Appetit booklet "Parties for Every Season". I sometimes increase the lemon juice and add another clove of garlic and about 1/2 teaspoon of dried oregano to create a different flavor, similar to what I can buy at the grocery store.”
