Cumin Curried Hummus

Packaged hummus may be convenient, but all you need for a better-tasting homemade version is a can of chickpeas, a food processor, and about three minutes. This recipe uses sautéed garlic and toasted spices to create an Indian-flavored dip that'll wow your guests. Serve with vegetables (cauliflower is especially good), crackers, pita, or naan (store-bought or homemade).
