Veggies, beans, and spices; cooked to perfection! Baked hummus is my new go-to game day dip because it is so easy to make and is perfect for prepping ahead of time. I throw it all together and top it with cheese, then cover and refrigerate until ready for baking. Simply bake, add your garnishes, and serve!
