Hummus with Avocado Oil

March 31, 2020

A classic dip to add flavor, contrasting texture, and more satisfaction to snacks like cut fresh vegetables, and flaxseed, rice, and other gluten-free crackers, hummus can be thrown together in a blender with pantry ingredients in five minutes or less. If you don’t have fresh lemons on hand, substitute bottled lemon juice or go without it. You may need to add a bit more water if you leave out the lemon juice to make sure the hummus has the right consistency.

Classic hummus, which is made with chickpeas, does have a higher amount of carbs than other paleo or keto snacks (such as additive-free salami, organic full-fat cheeses, olives, nut butters, coconut oil, etc.), so pay attention to portion size if you’re watching your carbs.
