The Hummus’ Dance – Three Delicious Ways

I sincerely do not think there’s something better than a freshly made hummus. And I feel like eating it kind of all the time! More seriously, hummus is actually my “to-go” food whenever not in the mood to cook something complicated, or receiving friends over or organising some kind of dinner party. I love it and could eat it by the bucket load, especially since it’s very creamy, filling and that you can pair it with almost everything. On a lazy evening, I would probably with greens, veggies, rye bread or quinoa, so that I can be sure to have some kind of protein intake. I’ve playing round with hummus recipes, as I wanted to offer a few other types than the plain one, and those really are my favourites. For a little sweetness, I would definitely go for the carrot one. If you like it to be a little spicy, the beetroot one is the one to choose.

The 2016 Christmas Gift: A Cranberry, Apple & Ginger Chutney

And there’s another problem: the good and organic ones that only contain nuts are crazy expensive…! That’s when this tip becomes handy. When I first discovered that I could actually make my own nut butter, I was totally thrilled, jumping like a grasshopper all around my kitchen, with my blender working full speed (and my best friend filming…)! As soon as I started eating healthy, nut butter has been my core ingredient, the answer to most of my pains and sorrows.
