Pleasantly bitter and bringing a fantastic crunchy texture, broccolini makes for an exceptional partner to rich and creamy hummus. Trust us, after just one bite, you will be hooked on this flavorful, 4-ingredient, topper. Season with salt and pepper to taste and serve with baked pita chips, if desired.
