3 Simple Hummus Recipes (Savory and Sweet)
Fall days tend to be full of hustle and bustle. Right now I, like Kimi, am focusing on keeping meals simple. My slow cooker is busy most days with bone broths, main dishes, oatmeal and beans. One bean that has been in my pot a lot recently is garbanzo beans.
Garbanzo beans (or chickpeas) like all legumes are high in protein. They are popular in Middle Eastern, Indian, Mediterranean and Italian cuisines. You can find garbanzos featured in hummus, curries, salads and falafel. Recipes are popping up on the Internet for roasted chickpeas, garbanzo bean milk and in gluten free deserts.
I am happy to say that I am a new monthly contributor at The Nourishing Gourmet. September is Back to School Month, where Kimi and the rest of the ladies are sharing simple meals, snacks and crafts as the school year gets off to a start. Are you curious about the hummus recipes? Head on over!
