Next time you’re in the mood for hummus, try this one-of-a-kind recipe for a fresh, seasonal twist on this popular snack. What makes it so unique? Well, for one thing, the ingredient list strays from traditional hummus. You’ll swap chickpeas with spring peas, trade tahini for almond butter and replace parsley with basil. Perfect for dipping your favorite veggies or gluten-free crackers (we suggest Simple Mills and Mary’s Gone Crackers), this healthy hummus is ready in less than five minutes.
