Classic Hummus with celery

High in protein, fiber and vitamin B6, this Classic Hummus recipe makes a great healthy dish that is super easy to make. For a slightly smoother hummus, you could use skinless chickpeas though you add ten minutes more prep time. Typically, hummus is served alongside falafel, eggplant and tahini sauce (optional just add more olive oil), and can be garnished with chickpeas, pine nuts, chopped tomatoes, cucumber slices, parsley or cilantro, or olive oil. Pair it with grainless crackers or raw veggies (especially celery) for a healthy everyday snack, or party appetizer!
