Author Notes

Everyone needs a good, straightforward hummus recipe in their arsenal. This is mine. I riffed off a recipe in Melissa Clark's 'Cook This Now', but adjusted it to suit my preferences, bringing in some flavors she didn't use and playing down others (cumin) I don't love. The recipe that follows is my favorite mix, but play around with the proportions and ingredients a bit to make it your own. —Tayla
