Chart: The Definitive Guide to Homemade Hummus

Ready to make your own hummus? Here are 13 variations to get you started

The humble chickpea contains a world of possibilities.

If you’ve graduated from store-bought hummus, or you’re at least looking for ways to do more with dip, check out this neat and simple infographic brought to you by Shape magazine.

Here are 13 different ways to make hummus with the basics, which are simply a food processor and a drained can of beans (chickpeas usually, but who’s checking?).

From classic hummus (tahini, olive oil, lemon juice, and garlic) to an edamame version (trade chickpeas for edamame) to a “cheater’s classic” version (trade tahini sauce for peanut butter), this list of recipe variations is enough to keep your lunches and snacks more interesting for weeks to come.

For that matter, don’t be afraid to add hummus to a sandwich; it almost always works out.

As with all our favorite infographics, we recommend you bookmark this on your browser for future consultation, or print it out if you think it’ll be especially useful. It’ll look nice next to your poster explaining how to cook any cut of beef, and put reliable information somewhere you’ll never lose it.
