I’m on a major hummus kick lately. It’s incredibly easy to make at home and disappears so quickly every time I do. I wanted to try something different than the usual hummus flavors. So, I thought I would throw together this light and refreshing celery and spring onion hummus. It’s the perfect side dish for summer! Not only does it taste amazing, but it’s really nutritious too.
I literally put hummus on everything. Of course, I use it as a dip with veggies, but I’ll also spread it on rice crackers, use it in sandwiches as a spread, top my morning toast with it, or throw it in a salad as the dressing. I’ve even used it to make a vegan vegetable cole slaw that was a huge hit with my friends. This hummus is packed with vitamins & you can make it in one bowl in under 5 minutes. It doesn’t get much easier than that!
Because they can be handy for a variety of dishes, I always keep an endless stock of chickpeas in my pantry. Chickpeas are the base for hummus and then all you have to do is throw in some fresh veggies, nutritional yeast, garlic, and salt. Besides being gluten-free, vegan, and oil-free, it’s amazingly creamy and smooth. I couldn’t stop eating it!
I chose to make this hummus at home because if you look at the store-bought kind it’s usually filled with oils, preservatives, and other “natural flavors” (what does that even mean?). You really don’t need the oil and trust me you won’t even miss it. Plus then I feel better about eating the whole bowl full in one sitting because it’s much healthier and more satisfying.
Hummus is great for parties, get togethers, BBQs, or movie nights because it’s the best finger food. You can serve it with anything on the side but I usually opt for fresh veggies like carrots, cucumbers or celery.
If you’re someone who likes hummus and wants to switch it up, then this flavor combo is for you. The nutritional yeast gives it a little bit of a cheesy flavor and the celery and spring onions really make it so fresh and light. It’s the true definition of clean eating.
