Whether you call them chickpeas or garbanzo beans, the key ingredient in hummus is healthy. That's why I love making easy hummus recipes I can share with my family--giving them just one more reason to eat healthy food with every meal and snack.
I have a few favourite hummus recipes, like Sweet Potato Hummus, Edamame Hummus and Spicy Indian Hummus. Since I love getting creative in the kitchen, it was only natural to mix things up just a little bit. Hence--Avocado Hummus, a delightful twist on two household favourites--hummus and guacamole.
Healthy Hummus for You and the Kids
Kids love food that can be dipped. Or put on a stick. And while we're not putting these pepper slices on a kabob (although we certainly could), dipping a sweet bell pepper slice into a healthy-for-you dip is a win all around.
Quick Healthy Recipes
Your time is important, but so is your health. Easy hummus recipes can be whipped up in 5 minutes flat, leaving you with extra time to enjoy your creation and more time to get everything else on your list done.
