Three Hummus Recipes

When I was younger, my mum used to cut up plates of vegetables or fruit for us to eat after school, and serve them with healthy homemade dips. I still love to have sliced veggies with some hummus as a snack — which is why it’s always good to have a few different hummus recipes!

Because hummus is so easy, you can make a batch to take with you to school or work! Make your work day healthier by snacking on homemade hummus and some fresh veggies. Or whip some up to add to a platter next time you have friends over!

Try these three hummus recipe ideas next time you have a craving!
