Food Network Hummus Trio

Freshly made hummus with veggies and pita is perfect for a quick snack, or an easy way to impress guests when entertaining. You can never go wrong with a traditional recipe of tahini and chickpeas, or try one of our favorite twists on this Middle Eastern dish by adding yogurt, veggies or various spices for bold flavor.

This assortment of hummus uses the same base of chickpeas and tahini for all three, making variety easier than ever. Just stir in extra toppings like pine nuts, peppadew peppers or spinach and artichokes to create three all-new dips.
