I am just dippy about dips and am fairly sure that they should be a food group in their own right. Top of the dip charts is hummus (hommus, houmus), which however you choose to spell it, is delicious, and if served with some vegetables is a reasonably healthy choice.
Traditional hummus should is made with either chickpeas or garbanzo beans depending which side of the Atlantic you live. I think that garbanzo sounds so much more exciting than boring old chickpeas does. I’ve added in a few bean and lentil hummuses (hummi?) too.

Wow i never knew there were quite so many variants of houmous (sorry that’s how I spell it, if it’s good enough for Tesco:-) and chocolate houmous sounds a must!Thanks for including my Peanut Butter one:-)
I love hummus or however you spell it. After writing the post they all looked wrong!
I am very fond of pumpkin hummus and beetroot hummus but am amazed at all the variations here! Did you see the warm hummus on Fat Free Vegan recently – that is something I haven’t seen before.
What a brilliant roundup of recipes Helen. I am now craving hummus! Thanks for including me. Stumbled, pinned, tweeted and shared!

A hummus for every week of the year. Almost.
Becca @ Amuse Your Bouche
I have a love/hate relationship with hummus – but I absolutely love versions made with other beans for some reason, so I love that you included a section for those!
Other beans and lentils are good too Becca!
Nice round-up. A few to add to my ever-expanding repertoire of dips.
There is nothng like a dip Kellie!
