Hummus has long been one of my favorite dishes, both for meals and snacks. Sometimes I eat carrot sticks JUST so I can have some hummus. And nothing beats homemade hummus… especially this detoxifying recipe from our Fresh Start (spring) cleanse.
Chickpeas are an awesome source of plant-based protein + iron, but we’ve ramped up the nutrient content of this yummy dip even more by including a mix of fresh herbs. Serve with veggies for dipping, or slather some on collard greens or romaine lettuce leaves for a yummy veggie wrap!
With this recipe on hand, you’ll never need store-bought hummus again! Along with iron-rich chickpeas, we’ve included loads of fresh, vibrant herbs to add extra vitamins, minerals, and leafy green love to an already beloved dip.
