Broccoli for Broccoli Hummus

What Is Hummus?

Hummus is a Middle Eastern dip made from mashed chickpeas, tahini paste, garlic, lemon, olive oil. hummus that includes broccoli. I love plain hummus but, depending on the season or what I have on hand, I love adding extra veggies to my hummus recipes, they take the hummus to another level. Like my Roasted Fennel Hummus, Zucchini Hummus or Artichoke Hummus.

I love the taste of broccoli and also its great nutritional benefits.  It is low in calories and high in vitamins and minerals.  It provides iron, calcium, protein, Vitamin A, B, C, K, omega 3’s, zinc, magnesium, selenium.

Broccoli is one of the world’s healthiest vegetables. So I’m always looking for ways to incorporate it, in my menu. Read more about broccoli’s nutritional benefits here.


How To Make Broccoli Hummus

It is so easy to make hummus from scratch, First I cooked the broccoli for this hummus but roasted broccoli would also be flavorful. Next, I combined all the ingredients in a food processor or blender and process until smooth, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed.  I served the broccoli hummus with avocado wrapped with brown rice tortilla.
