The lemon and garlic flavours are very well balanced in the hummus, it does not over power the taste of the chickpeas.A delicious dip, tastes good with lavash, pita, chips, salad and also as a spread on bread or wrap.

This Hummus recipe is so quick and easy to make. Perfect to serve for a party with Lavash. The drizzling of oil and sprinkling of chilli powder and parsley on top makes it even more tastier...try it to believe it ! My friends and family loved it...
