Put a container of hummus paired with some carrot sticks and pita bread in front of a bunch of students or young twenty-somethings, and watch as the entire chickpea spread is happily devoured. Not surprising, because hummus is amazingly delicious and oh-so-versatile. The only drawback is the money you need to spend to always have some hummus on hand, which wouldn't be a problem if you could make your own.
