From Zone Perfect Meals in seconds. This is my favorite hummus recipe - delicious flavor and a great balance of protein/carbs/fat. My DH and SIL, both big hummus fans, say they prefer my hummus over any other. I often serve it alongside quinoa tabouleh as an appetizer with pretzels/crackers/celery for dipping or as a spread in wraps, etc.
