Mix and Match Lunch (Hummus Recipe)

 

I'll admit that I find the food blogs where people post photos of everything they eat oddly fascinating. I would love to do that but I just never remember until after I am done eating. This lunch, however, looked so pretty that I took a photo and am now sharing it with you.

My lunches often look like this- a mix of the good things I have been whipping up in my kitchen in the  week. It's also a great way to serve lunch for guests- they just take what they want, relieves the need to make a whole big meal and everyone feels light, nourished and satisfied after. So what do we have here?

Here is my recipe for Traditional Hummus

    I prefer to use dried chickpeas that I cook myself. Unfortunately, most of the recipes I find call for the canned. Could you please tell me how many cups of chickpeas are in a can? Thank you.
