Veggie Hummus

Veggie Hummus

Hummus has become a highly popular food in many countries across the world. With it’s creamy texture, delicious, savory flavor and versatility, it’s not hard to understand why.

There are endless variations of hummus, many of which can be healthy choices. However some can contain poor quality oils like sunflower, vegetable and canola oils, along with additives like citric acid and preservatives.

As with all foods, the best way to ensure what you’re eating is truly healthy, is to make it yourself. Traditional hummus recipes use chickpeas as a base, which are a good option, but beans can still cause problems for some people.

A better alternative that’s really delicious is to make your own hummus with a base of vegetables, like raw zucchini. This adds the creamy texture and bulk that chickpeas would normally offer, but is easier to digest and offers extra nutrients.

Today’s recipe gives you a simple and tasty vegetable-based hummus recipe to make at home. One of the best things about this recipe is that no cooking is required, so it can be pulled together in just a few short minutes.

Enjoy this recipe with vegetable crudités, wrapped in lettuce leaves with other fillings, or served with gluten and corn free crackers. It’s perfect for lunch, dinner or a snack...or all of these!
