It’s no secret that chickpeas are a great source of plant-based protein, and this PeaNOTS Powered Hummus kicks it up a notch further. Plus, the Vegan Ranch PeaNOTS give the hummus a delicious flavor that may just be your new favorite!

 

 

PeaNOTS Powered Hummus

 

If you’ve never made hummus at home, I promise you that once you try it, you’ll wonder why it took you so long. It only takes a handful of ingredients and less than 5 minutes of your time to whip up smooth, flavorful hummus from the comfort of your own home. Plus, how fun is it to make a gorgeous spread out of it with lots of toppings and tell your friends and family that you made it yourself? Low effort, big impact.

 

Adding the LesserEvil Vegan Ranch PeaNOTS to this hummus recipe not only gives the hummus a delicious flavor, but it adds additional protein, which is such an added bonus!

 

 

Topping Talk

 

Want to take your hummus to the next level? Easy, just turn it into a spread! Grab your favorite serving platter or plate and spread your hummus onto it. Next, layer on the toppings.

 Here are my favorites:

  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  •   Flakey Sea Salt
  •   Cracked Black Pepper
  •   Chopped Fresh Dill
  •   LesserEvil’s PeaNOTS (they add the best crunch!)
  •   Roasted Chickpeas
  •   Chopped Cherry Tomatoes
  •   Feta (can be vegan as well!)
  •   Mini Cucumber Slices

 Perfectly Paired

 

Finish off your spread with an assortment of items to dip into the hummus. These items can act as toppings or be arranged nicely off to the side of the hummus to create a purposeful and beautiful plate.

 

What I love to pair with hummus:

  •   Mini Cucumber Slices
  •   Vegan & Gluten Free Pita or Flatbread
  •   Vegan & Gluten Free Crackers
  •   Vegan & Gluten Free Pretzels
  •   Halved Cherry Tomatoes
  •   Carrot Sticks
  •   Radish Slices
  •   Bell Pepper Slices
