Hummus is the perfect dip for snacking! It’s got chickpeas for fibre and protein, olive oil for healthy fat, and tahini (sesame paste) which contains protein, healthy fat, fibre, calcium, and magnesium. It’s nutrient-dense and very delicious. It couldn’t be easier to make at home. Ditch the store-bought hummus that often uses ultra-refined inflammatory canola oil, and spend less than 5 minutes to blend up your own that tastes much better than the one from the store.
This recipe gives plain hummus a kick with lime juice and red curry paste. It’s a little bit spicy and very delicious. Even little kids love it! Pick your favourite things for dipping like raw vegetables, gluten-free seed crackers, or gluten-free tortilla chips and you’ve got the perfect snack to bring to work, pack in your kiddo’s lunch box, or serve at a party!
