2 Delicious Ways to Put a Twist on Hummus

February 21st, 2017

It was 80 degrees in Austin last weekend, and I threw on a bikini and jumped in the pool. Nevermind that it’s the middle of February; that one hot day was all it took to send me into total countdown-to-summer mode. Over the past few days, I’ve ordered a new swimsuit, sipped a margarita, and mixed up these two creative hummus recipes that have sunny day vibes written all over them (though they’re totally acceptable if you’re still suffering through winter.) Pro tip: these taste better if consumed while wearing cutoffs and flip flops. Keep scrolling for the recipes…

    Hello from Australia. I made the cilantro hummus and I have never made a successful one. This was so so good! I will be making it weekly. Thanks Camille! Austin seems so far away and cool, so great to have a recipe from your kitchen!
