    Prepare the Ingredients

    Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and prepare a baking sheet with foil or use a nonstick baking sheet. Cut pita bread into triangles and arrange on baking sheet. Place in oven to toast for 5-7 minutes, or until desired warmth or crispiness is achieved. Thoroughly rinse produce and pat dry. Rinse and drain chickpeas. Halve lemon. Halve bell pepper, removing membrane (white spiny innards) and seeds. Chop bell pepper into thin, dippable strips. Remove tops and bottoms from radishes. Slice celery into dippable spears. Cut parsley into a fine dice. Mince garlic.

    Prepare the Hummus
