I’m not vegan, or even vegetarian, but I aim for 70-80% of what I eat to be plant-based. I just feel better that way. So foods that have been around for generations and are already plant-based are worth memorizing, because they’re usually simple to make and super tasty.
Enter hummus. It’s a favorite around here, and I’ve been working through several recipes and iterations before finding one that hits that sweet spot between simple and delicious. Way better than anything you’d buy from the store, and cheaper to boot.
I think it’s also worth mentioning, hummus isn’t just a dip. That’s what it’s known for, but you can use it in so many ways and once you know how to make it you’ll find more uses for it every day. Check out the video below for some of my favorites.
