There’s nothing wrong with grabbing your favorite flavor of hummus and simply dipping pita bread into it. But since hummus nutrition facts might surprise you (it’s high in protein) and there are so many different types of hummus, why not expand your horizons? Here are 10 recipes with hummus that are easy, healthy and delicious:
