I consider hummus an essential recipe you’ll want to master.
Make it your mission to memorize your favourite combination of ingredients, so you can create a super tasty hummus in minutes.
Why is hummus important for a plant eater?
Because it’s not only delicious it’s also nutritious and makes eating a plant based diet that much easier.
1/4 cup of hummus provides an important daily serving of legumes.
It’s great as a dip for veg, crackers, whole grain bread and it’s fantastic on a sandwich, in a wrap and in a Buddha bowl.
I personally love it with my favourite lemony-oregano salad, I dip my fork full of salad into the hummus with every bite.
Remember, you can play around with legume based dips.
Try switching out the chickpeas for navy beans.
