Vegan Hummus

Vegan Hummus PinVegan hummus is a mainstay on our snack list. You can make a batch and eat it throughout the week with pita chips, bread, carrots, celery, sliced peppers, broccoli, cauliflower, radishes, or any other veggie of choice. It even works well as a condiment for your veggie burgers and sandwiches.

Classic hummus is made with chickpeas (aka garbanzo beans), which are packed with protein and fiber. One serving of this recipe has 9 grams of protein and 9 grams of fiber. When you pair it with raw veggies, you’ll not only get tons of healthy nutrients, you’ll also feel fuller from all of that fiber.

In addition to protein and fiber, hummus is packed with other healthy nutrients like calcium and iron. It has even been shown to lower cholesterol and sugar levels, reduce your risk of cancer, help with weight control, and many other benefits.

Hummus tastes great with pita chips or bread, but if you’re trying to lose weight, you might want to stick with the raw veggies for awhile. In fact, hummus is very high calorie so you might want to skip it until you’ve reached your weight loss goals. This recipe has over 200 calories per serving including the veggies used for dipping.

This vegan hummus recipe is super easy and very tasty, but you will need a food processor.
