Peanut Butter Hummus

Peanut Butter Hummus

Homemade hummus is delicious and very easy to make - you can easily whip something up in 10 minutes.  Hummus is so versatile that it can be added to almost anything you eat. I enjoy it in my sandwich, salads, or as a little side next to my dinner. But my favorite of course is using it as a dip for Nordic Crisps.  

Traditional hummus ingredients include tahini, which is made of sesame paste. This is something that I rarely have on hand, so when I found this recipe by Mackenzie Burgess from Cheerful Choices I was thrilled.

Her recipe can easily be adapted to your preference, and I substitute the peanut butter with sunflower butter as my son is allergic to peanuts. Mackenzie loves adding a ½ tsp cumin and I couldn’t agree more. She also suggests that you can add herbs or roasted peppers.

For presentation: We use a spoon to stir the hummus into a spiral, add a little olive oil on top, and finish it off a with sprinkle of smoked paprika, fresh parsley and some whole chick peas. Delicious! Our kids love it as much as we do.
