Sad but true story.
The moral of the story though is that Zucchini Hummus was one of the key staples in my new health food routine that helped me transition away from my usual store-bought hummus snack, to a better healthier, fresher homemade alternative.
And while I don’t recommend overdoing any type of food (health food or not), I DO recommend finding your own favorite staples as you start your cleanse or your new healthy lifestyle.
This vibrant bright green hummus dip is ideal for spring, featuring sweet peas. It makes a great snack with veggie sticks or even a delicious spread on a collard green or nori veggie wrap – another one of my favorite springtime lunches.
Enjoy and be sure to leave me a comment below. Do you love hummus? What do you think of this green pea lemony twist? Can it become one of your favorite all-time healthy staples?
With sweet green pea love,
Green Pea Hummus
