By: Angela Keyser, HQO Marketing Manager

Hummus is a delicious, gluten-free snack that is easy to make and can be paired with a number of foods from pita chips to carrot sticks.  It’s also a flavorful spread to add to sandwiches.

Hummus is usually made with chickpeas and a variety of herbs and spices from Mediterranean to spicy Mexican flavors.  You can even make it with other bases like sweet potatoes, beets or edamame.  Here’s an absolutely spectacular-tasting recipe I learned from my days at The Soyfoods Council.  It’s so flavorful and beautiful, a great snack or appetizer to serve anytime of year.
