I really don't care for the hummus on the market these days, so I make my own. The proper way to serve this to guests is to create a small well in the center and pour a little bit of extra virgin olive oil in it, but I don't usually bother for myself. If you want flavored Hummus, just add the ingredient in that you want. Though it has a clove of garlic this is not garlic hummus - for garlic hummus increase the number of cloves to 3 or more to taste. Serve with crackers, pita toasts, veggies, salami, or anything else you wish! This is alot less expensive than buying hummus too! I've looked at the other hummus recipes here before posting this, but none were quite the same as this classic I have been using with rave reviews for years.
