Hummus is a long time favorite in my house and is a go-to whenever I need to bring something to a dinner party with minimal effort. This hummus recipe is one in many, but its creaminess and delicate flavor enhanced by the cumin has consistently brought praise from many friends and acquaintances for being the “most authentic” they’ve ever tasted.
