Asparagus and Hummus on Pita

Another asparagus recipe! I love asparagus, and since it's only in season here for 2 months or so, I try to gobble it up as much as I can. I typically will keep some steamed asparagus in my fridge as a quick side dish or snack. This recipe came to exist from me being hungry and not wanting to go to the store. Don't you love those recipes?

I was just going to have some hummus and pita, but then I saw my steamed asparagus and decided to add some on top of the toasted pita. Spread a little hummus, drizzle a little olive oil, some salt and pepper, and you've got one delectable spring snack, easy peasy!
