Buffalo Wing Hummus

by Kelli H. on February 17, 2014

It’s almost getting to the point where my hummus recipe posting is comical. Yet again, here I am on Monday morning posting another new hummus recipe. I’ll just let you know right off the bat that this recipe differs a tad in that I don’t use any lemon. Reason being — I was out. It also doesn’t have any oil in it since it uses some of the water the beans soaked in. Still tastes delicious and it has a great smoky spicy flavor going on. David raved about this one, and I’m glad I’m sharing the recipe, because it’s definitely one I’m going to be looking back at regularly.

I hope you’re enjoying your 3-day weekend, if you’re lucky enough to have one. Luckily I have it off! I am so grateful for an extra day. Unfortunately, David’s damn school decided they shouldn’t have President’s Day off and that they will observe Cesar Chavez’s birthday later in March. Doesn’t make much sense to me. We actually find it pretty annoying as we were planning on going up to Truckee for the weekend with family but what’s the point if you have to cut it short. Anyway, enough of my complaining…enjoy your day off!

I’ve made a version of this hummus before and it’s one of my favourites! I try a lot of hummus recipes too but I always come back to buffalo πŸ™‚

One can never have too much hummus. πŸ™‚

That sucks that David didn’t have the day off with you, especially because they’re giving him Cezar Chavez’s birthday off…weird. Hopefully you get to make it to Truckee sometime soon!

Haaa, sounds like you’re on quite the hummus kick! I just made hummus last night, but it was a boring, typical version compared to your buffalo hummus creation! — Nicole @ Foodie Loves Fitness
