Hummus is a great snack dip that hails from the Mediterranean and is loaded with plant based protein. It's pairs well with carrots, celery sticks, or pita chips. Traditionally it is made with chick peas ( garbanzo beans), sesame paste, garlic and lemon juice. There are so many variations available too, like this avocado hummus.
