If you’re avoiding legumes, or just looking for a change of pace from garbanzo-bean hummus, this addicting recipe is the treat you’re looking for. We love this hummus as a dip for sliced carrots, cucumbers, or whole green beans. It also be used as a condiment with cooked meat, or even spooned over chicken as it bakes for a special treat.
I love using fresh-pressed olive oil in this, as a way to include this delicious and healthy oil in our diets, while protecting its delicate structure by keeping it raw. Click here to see the fresh pressed olive oil that I use.
