PROTEIN PACKED HUMMUS

PROTEIN PACKED HUMMUS
PROTEIN PACKED HUMMUS

We reckon hummus is one of life’s greatest pleasures. It’s creamy, tasty, healthy and takes sticks of vegetables from basic to bangin’. We’ve made our fair share of hummus but never with lentils. Trust us when we say that it’s an excellent way to go and makes for a dip that is packed to the gills with protein. Win-win.

If you're looking for the best healthy hummus recipe ever.... you have just found it!
