This week, we asked you all to share your favorite hummus recipe and dipper.  From Facebook to Twitter, you gave some absolutely delicious responses and suggested some new flavor combos to try. While some seemed to go with traditional hummus, others had some unique ideas that really got us excited.  Without a doubt, we’ll be making your favorite hummus recipes this week!

We understand (because we’ve been there too!) that one day might require the comfort of savory, smooth classic hummus, while another may call for a pick-me-up of hummus intensity and heat in each bite. To help you with your fluctuating hummus cravings, we’ve featured a nice spread of hummus recipe responses for you — all in one place!

Check out these creative hummus creations!

Hummus made simple:

“Its so easy! The standard Egyptian style is my fav. Chickpeas, tahini, lemon juice, fresh garlic, salt and…can’t give it all away! Dip homemade pita chips (toss separated and cut pita bread with canola oil, sprinkle with kosher salt and bake about 6 min at 400.) — Magda, via Facebook
