Have you heard of Hummus?

Regardless of if you are vegan or not, chances are that a platter of crackers, crudités and hummus in some form has been served to you at some stage during your lifetime. This popular dip comes from the Arabic word for ‘chickpeas’ as it is made from blended chickpeas, tahini and assorted seasoning. Creamy, potentially spicy, chunky or smooth – however you like your hummus, it’s rather difficult to mess up making it. There are many pre-made hummus tubs in stores that are almost always accidentally vegan so are a go-to for many meat-free munch times.

Some hummus-loving fans have taken this dip to the next level by creating meme pages dedicated to hummus – not everyone has to go this far (you could just get comfy with a tub of hummus and a spoon) so here is 10 recipes with unbeatable flavours that will inspire your next sitting of finishing, then licking the hummus tub clean – we’ve all done it.
