Hummus with a Twist- 3 recipes in one post by Widzzy

Sticking to a healthy clean diet can be challenging at times, especially when you find yourself hungry with nothing to eat. One of the tricks is making sure your cupboard is well stocked with healthy nutritious wholefoods and that you always have something ‘clean’ in the fridge that you can munch on when hunger strikes. For me, nothing works better than hummus. It’s tasty and filling and really versatile. You can use it as a dip with celery and carrot sticks, on top of crackers with avocado and tomato, in your salads or in children’s lunch-boxes.

Now we’re all used to the type of hummus served in Lebanese restaurants but I find that when you flavor it with certain herbs it totally alters the taste and takes it to another level.

I’ll be sharing with you my hummus trio with a twist. 3 different hummus recipes you can use whenever you wish and maybe even impress house guests with.
