Recipe Notes

WHAT KIND OF HUMMUS DO I USE? 

Remember the hummus is the base and you are adding extra flavors and textures to it. So whether you are buying or making your hummus make sure it has a great fresh flavor and creamy texture.

CAN I USE A FLAVORED HUMMUS? 

YES! again remember you are adding other flavors to your hummus, but these flavors pair really well with your typical flavored hummus. I love to use a roasted garlic, or plain. Other popular variations are roasted pepper hummus, Mediterranean hummus and so on. 

STORE BOUGHT OR HOMEMADE? REALLY? IS ONE BETTER? 

Store bought and homemade DO TASTE DIFFERENT but you know what? I love them BOTH! There are certain brands from the store that are definitely better than others, so if you are choosing store bought try a variety of brands to make sure you are choosing the very best.
