Hummus and Toasted Pita Wedges

Hummus is a real power snack..it's packed full of whole proteins because of the chickpeas and it comes together in only a few minutes in your kitchen. We are a BIG fan of dips in this house and luckily we managed to perfect this recipe in one weekend of experimentations. This dip is awesome served with toasted pita wedges.
