Our Favorite Healthy Hummus Recipes

This recipe collection illustrates just how versatile hummus can be. Experimenting with flavors and preparation methods isn't tricky as long as you have mastered a basic hummus, which isn't hard to do. For that reason, we'll start off with Traditional Hummus.

This Middle Eastern dip is traditionally made with chickpeas, tahini, lemon juice, and olive oil; it lends itself to several variations. Prepare and refrigerate it a day ahead; let it stand at room temperature for 30 minutes before serving. Garnish with a lemon wedge and fresh parsley sprig, and serve with Spicy Baked Pita Chips.
