Hummus makes a great party recipe, it can be modified in so many ways and can make a great appetizer for any party. It is healthy,protein rich and very tasty as well. It is one of my favorite dips of all. Hummus is great served as a dip or as a spread for wraps, check out my veggie hummus wrap and carrot hummus wrap
