I like roasted red pepper hummus from Trader Joe's. I use it as a dip for veggies but also as a sandwich spread.

I tried plain hummus a few times & never understood what the big hairy deal was, it was just meh to me. Then I decided to give the flavored ones a try-oh baby! Now I'm addict & have it with carrots & grape tomatos with my lunch almost every day. So far I've only tried the Sabra & Target brands-IMO, Sabra is much better.

Great article-it got a shout out on The Daily Show too.

I can relate to the growing interest to hummus...I was just introduced to hummus by a co-worker last week, brought my own (Red Pepper Basil) and some mini sweet peppers Yum YUm emoticon

I really don't like chick peas at all...but I love hummus.

mom won't even try hummus, but she LOVES chick peas.

actually, my dislike of chick peas probably comes from many years of setting up, tearing down, and cleaning salad bars. Or maybe I just need the other flavors. My favorite hummus is Sabra Supremely Spicy. It's so good with those tri-color sweet mini peppers.

Mmmm!!!! Hummus! It's really simple to make from scratch, too, y'all!!!
So's falafel.
And chick peas taste really yummy on a salad with Goddess salad dressing (by Annie's naturals). Nom nom nom nom.

Great article, and I hope more people will eat hummus. It's a great spread. Try it with a chicken sandwich or a kebab, wonderful.

Thanks for sharing the article! I couldn't be happier as a former smoker (long ago) who is now a hummus devotee. Just had some Cedar's Red Pepper--yummm.

I saw this article yesterday and was so excited. I love hummus and we got my son to start eating it a couple years ago, so it's always a staple in our house to go with veggies and on sandwiches.

I love this article!

"Prodded by the largest U.S. hummus maker, farmers in the heart of tobacco country are trying to grow chickpeas, an improbable move that reflects booming demand for hummus.... Long a staple of Middle Eastern cuisine, hummus is earning a growing following among Americans seeking more-healthful snacks...Virginia officials are eager to develop new crops in a state where tobacco farming has shrunk dramatically since the 1990s because of declining cigarette sales."

How great is this!! Save your lungs AND save a farmer! Dip into that hummus, folks!
