Trying to think of healthy new food options can be challenging; it’s boring to eat the same salads and veggies all day every day, and coming up with new delicious entrees can be enticing but annoying.
Hummus is something that can be used in so many different ways. This Mediterranean chickpea mix can be used as a dip for pita or chips, as a spread for sandwiches or as an accent for a delicious veggie burger. It’s also super simple to make; you can make a large batch and keep it in the fridge or freezer for enjoying later.
Make some hummus for friends to seem like a top exotic-cuisine chef!
