Hummus is a dip/spread that is made from chickpeas.
There are different types of hummus dips, some have a lemon flavor, some have garlic flavoring, and some hummus have a spicy tone with roasted red peppers.
Hummus can be prepared in advance up to two days if store in airtight container in the refrigerator but be sure to heat in microwave or on stovetop before serving.
It only takes 10 minutes to make!

2 tablespoons roasted garlic
1/2 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon olive oil
