Fresh. I sometimes make toasted pita chips but not for hummus.

Lovely presentation. I make hummus about 3-4x/month. I often add toasted walnuts. I usually use dried chickpeas. I make a whole bunch and freeze what I don't use for the next batch. I eat hummus on fresh veggies as a dip, on leaf lettuce as the base for a wrap, on rice wrappers topped with fresh veggies and herbs. One thing I keep meaning to try is freezing hummus, but I never seem to have any leftover.

That's a brilliant idea to freeze cooked chickpeas.

I'd wondered if you meant dried garbanzos in your recipe too. Apparently so!
Garbanzo beans and chickpeas are the same thing

I will often buy a can of chick peas, rinse them, and eat for a snack. Love them on a salad.

I love chick peas. I will dress them with EVOO and vinegar, Italian spices, and red pepper flakes, let them sit overnight, and those are my lunch salad. I roast them, mash them, add them to all kinds of dishes. Wish I could grow them here, but they need 100+ days and we don't have that long of growing season. I use chick pea flour when I make pitas...love chick peas. And, they freeze well.

Cucumber slices, celery and carrot sticks, sliced raw mushrooms, lightly blanched asparagus spears or broccoli florets, cauliflower chunks...pretty much any raw or barely cooked veggie you would put on any well-appointed relish tray. And, of course, pita chips! My favorite is Stacey's multigrain. They're good "naked" too.
