Crisp veggies with hummus are fun to eat and are nutritious too. Most kids love this dip. I tried making this dip, ditching the traditional method of adding olive oil to it. To my delight, it worked well perfectly. I love to add lots of herbs to the point that it looks beautiful green. Instead of plain cumin powder, I use freshly roasted cumin seeds and powder them in a mortar pestle. The aroma itself is too good, and I have always experienced that roasted spices immensely exceed the dish's taste.
