What Can I Mix with Hummus to Make it Taste Better?

First, try lemon juice. It enhances the flavors. Next, drizzle generously some extra virgin olive oil – the higher the quality, the better the taste. If herby olive oil is a favorite, then use that for more color. Last, sprinkle some garlic powder, and fresh ground pepper. Cayenne pepper or paprika will supercharge your hummus with flavor too. 

How To Serve Hummus? 

Serve hummus with some drizzled olive oil or your favorite herb oil. Serve it as a wrap spread, sandwich; spread it on toast; or put it in an egg salad. Along with hummus serve some crackers, roasted/raw veggies, or pita chips.
