Classic chickpea hummus is such a mainstay snack in my house. I love that it is simple, really healthy and so flavorful when I start to get hangry between lunch and dinner! I’ve loved it since I was a little girl and my Nana Jeanie would make it for us. So a lot of the love comes from those fond memories. I had a few tricks up my sleeve to really bring out flavor too!
I finished up the hummus by spooning it into a pretty bowl and drizzling it with a little more olive oil. Then a sprinkling of pine nuts on top gave it some crunch! The only way to eat this stuff was with warm wedges of pita bread. I just lightly toasted the pita bread and cut it into 8 equal wedges. Oh my goodness, it really is one of my all time favorite snacks. The hummus was thick and so flavorful from sautéing the chickpeas. It kept for a couple of days sealed in a container in the refrigerator to enjoy the leftovers as well! Hope you all enjoy this incredible and simple Lebanese snack. xoxo
