When I am in the mood to nibble on something, one of my favorite go to snacks is always hummus!  I admit that I do buy the store bought varieties every now and then but there is absolutely NOTHING like a fresh made batch.  It’s SO easy to make, takes only a handful of few ingredients, and a it’s breeze to change flavors depending on what you already have on hand.  Last week, I bought a huge bunch of basil at my local farmer’s market and since I’m already a huge fan of lemon anything… well, those are the flavors I decided to go with!

One thing I did do different with this batch of hummus was pair it with something a little bit more special than my regular pita chips.  I had just received a fresh shipment of my favorite protein packed P28 items and those bagels were calling my name!  I figured I would spruce them up a bit and attempt to make some fresh bagel “chips”.  Result?  Nothing short of perfect.  They were so perfectly crispy and crunchy and paired perfectly with the tangy hummus!  Personally, I think they also make a great presentation as well…
