A few days ago when casually browsing recipes for inspiration, I saw a link for the "Best Ever 5-Minute Microwave Hummus." This clickbait-y title would normally make me turn around and run for the door, but for whatever reason, I decided to check it out. I'm glad I did, because this recipe is about zero effort and maximum reward. Eat it right away or put it in the fridge, it gets better with time and lasts for up to two weeks refrigerated.
