What I love most about hummus is how versatile it is -- you can make just about any variety of hummus and it will most likely taste good. There are literally hundreds of different types of hummus, from red pepper to banana (yes, there is a banana hummus recipe). One of my new favorite hummus flavors is avocado. I love avocados in warmer weather; they are light and refreshing -- not to mention healthy, too.
Avocados make a great hummus, too. The chickpeas and avocado create a unique flavor that is surprisingly good. I like to serve avocado hummus with fresh veggies instead of pita bread, however. Water crackers also pair well. Avocado Hummus Recipe
