This hummus recipe has been in our family for a very long time. It’s a simple garlic hummus, with a pomegranate seed topping for crunch. I change it up by adding  roasted peppers, spinach, artichokes, and fresh spices. Hummus is one of our bestsellers at the Greek Gourmet concession trailer during the Del Mar County Fair.

Garbanzo Beans or Chickpeas

I love the idea of adding pomegranate seeds. And I’ll definitely try artichoke hearts.
