Hummus is a great snack to have around the house or to put out for a party. But whether you’re making it at home and buying it from the store, serve it with a bit of pizazz with these easy tips and tricks. 

Add Spices

If you work a lot or simply don’t have the patience to make hummus from scratch, there are still ways you can jazz up store-bought hummus. Instead of leaving it as is, simply drizzle the hummus with some olive oil and add some spices on top. This not only makes it more flavorful but adds a pop of color to the plate. A few options are paprika, za’atar, or even sesame seeds.

Roasted Chickpeas

Roasted chickpeas are a great centerpiece to any hummus plate for many reasons. One, it reinforces the chickpea flavor from the hummus itself, it adds a textural element with the crunch, and it is also aesthetically beautiful. You can also play around with the spices you use for the chickpeas depending on your flavor profile.
