AMAZING HUMMUS RECIPE
Tasty and healthy, hummus is the perfect afternoon snack or party dip! This OH SO delicious recipe by the beautiful Angela Liddon from Oh She Glows was adapted from The Barefood Contessa. Hummus lovers ourselves, we really like her version’s balance of flavors. As always, it’s SUPER EASY to make in a Blendtec or Vitamix blender! Grab some carrots, celery, or cucumbers to dip into this creamy dip, and you have the perfect healthy snack or appetizer. Like all of our hummus recipes, this one tastes even better than buying from the store, and since you control what ingredients you add it’s a healthier option too! Blend up a batch in your high powered blender and this amazing hummus can last stored in your fridge for 4-5 days, although we’re sure it won’t last that long!

HEALTH BENEFITS & FUN FACTS ABOUT CHICKPEAS
Chickpeas, also known as garbanzo beans, are high in fiber and protein and have a low glycemic index; a combination perfect for making a snack that can help control your appetite by keeping you feeling fuller, longer! Chickpeas can also help lower HDL (bad cholesterol), reducing the risk of heart disease. There are many ways chickpeas can be incorporated into recipes. They can be used in salads, stews, soups, and curries. Garam, which is chickpea flour, can even be used as an egg substitute in baked goods!
