Homemade hummus is an easy and delicious dip for raw veggies and spread for sandwiches.
This is a recipe in Mark Bittman’s “The Best Recipes in the World” that I really like. Hummus is one of those foods that you simply have to taste over and over and experiment until you are at peace. While it's most often served with pita chips, it's a great dip for raw veggies and can be added to many kinds of sandwiches.
Once you get the hummus out of the blender, it is time to clean up while you are snacking. Try this if you don’t already do it — add a little dishwashing liquid to the blender, fill it half full with hot water, then blend on high speed with the top on tight (obviously). Voila. A clean blender and a healthy snack.
