Chives and Dill Hummus (No Oil/Tahini)

In my humble opinion, Life is good if you’ve got hummus! Hummus is such an amazingly versatile dish. If you want a sandwich, use hummus; if you want an appetizer or a snack, use hummus; if you need a dressing for a salad, use hummus!

Now hummus with Chives and Dill Weed is another whole level!  It sort of reminds me of Ranch without the added fat of oils and nuts.  Now that’s hummus worth living for!  All you need is a can of Chickpeas, a few spices, a food processor to blend it, and you’ve got a tasty condiment staple!

In my plant-based kitchen, hummus makes my world go around!  Recently  I created a recipe using this hummus as a batter for Air-Fried Cauliflower and Onion Rings!  Now it doesn’t get any better than that!

So the next time you have a taste for a sandwich, use this hummus.  As a matter of fact, make our L.A.T.O. Hummus Sandwich.  Or when you want a good dip for you favorite veggie or chip, use this hummus.  Your hummus world will never be the same!  Enjoy!
