Hummus and veggies is truly one of my most favourite afternoon snacks! Hummus gives you a good dose of midday energy, increases your fat burning potential and is such a versatile dip. You can add anything to it - garlic, curry powder, cayenne, roasted red peppers etc.
If that wasn't enough reason to love hummus, here's more:
Best of all, it's super easy to make as you'll see in the recipe below!

What are some of your favourite things to pair hummus with?
Excellent! Thanks Joy!Reply
Hi Joy, I just love hummus! Two quick questions, though: first, where can I get ground flax seeds? Do I need to go to a specialty/health food store, or can I get them at a regular supermarket? Second: I've never seen flax seeds mentioned in a hummus recipe before. I realize that they're good for your health, but what kind of flavor can I expect them to add to the finished product? Or are they even noticeable? AlexReply
Hi Alex! You have 2 options with flaxseeds and they are really easy to find at any local grocery store. 1. You can buy the whole seed (Bob's Red Mill is a good brand) and grind them yourself in a coffee grinder that has never been used for coffee. I literally grind flax seeds every morning, it take 10 seconds and then it's fresh so you know you are getting the most essential fatty acids. 2. You can buy ground flax seeds in a metal tin in Loblaws or any health food store. You have to consume them very quickly because they denature in about 2 weeks. The freshness is never going to be the same as grinding them yourself. They do not taste like anything, so adding them to food is not going to change the flavour. It will give a smoothie or hummus a bit more texture which is nice actually. Flax seeds are truly a superfood! Hope that helps, thanks for your questions. Cheerio, Joyous

Woww.. Never knew that hummus is soo healthy as well. Tried sesame seeds instead of Tahini and it turned out yummy. As well as fresh sesame seeds aroma is fabulous. I think you would like to try adding whole sesame seeds. Thanks for sharing.Reply
