Tomorrow, May 13th is Hummus Day!
Some of you are thinking, hummus? Yuck!
Hummus is not everyone’s cup of tea. It kind of reminds me of the affect cilantro or guacamole has on people – either you absolutely love it or absolutely hate it. I’ve heard statements like,” I hate the texture” or “It’s too bland.”
While that may be true of some expensive store-bought hummus (at $4 or more for a 10-oz tub) homemade hummus tastes way better and is cheaper. I am a conscious Vegan shopper with mouths to feed so I will try to find ways to favorably impact my wallet.
Price is not my only consideration because not all hummus varieties are created equal. I won’t compromise on the quality of my ingredients. Many store-bought varieties have ingredients like artificial flavors, sulfites and preservatives. The classic (no flavors added) hummus seems to contain less questionable ingredients. That’s where homemade hummus comes into play and eliminates the need to second guess store-bought ingredients. If you can find the time, why not just make it yourself? Start here with EP4L’s Roasted Pepper Black Bean Hummus. It’s creamy and packed with protein and flavor.
Roasted Pepper Black Bean Hummus is a twist on classic hummus. Traditional chickpeas are replaced with black beans. Juicy, roasted red peppers give this yummy hummus a slightly sweet flavor.
Topped with minced garlic and more roasted red peppers, Roasted Pepper Black Bean Hummus will be the headliner at your next gathering. Serve as a dip or as a sandwich spread. It’s a great condiment!
