Hummus Soup

When I first saw this recipe at Better Homes and Gardens, I knew I wanted to try it! My brother-in-law had introduced my husband and I to hummus a few years ago, and we’ve enjoyed it ever since. In case you haven’t heard of it, it’s a thick dip made with a base of chickpeas and usually lots of garlic, yum! After checking out the recipe for hummus soup, I decided to make an “express” version, but if you would like to try out their version, which starts with dried garbanzo beans and cooks in the crockpot, just click on the link.
