Christmas is almost here, so cue the effortless concepts that you can whip up in minutes!! When it comes to holidays or even dining out for that matter, I love apps! A taste of this here, a taste of that there, it’s just more of an experience for me with that approach.
That being said, I love the holidays as there are tons of apps to sample and try leaving your tastebuds always on their toes!! When thinking of effortless, I was instantly drawn to hummus. While traditional hummus has lost it’s flair over the years, it made way for countless modern hummus blends that help you to relive your love for hummus!!
When it comes to hummus I’ve done a Green Goddess, Cucumber with Tofu Feta, a Curried Sweet Potato, an Edamame, and even a dessert hummus. (don’t knock it till you try it!). I love to make homemade hummus as you just can’t go wrong, the process is full proof, the cost is pennies, and it gets more people in the kitchen realizing that they can whip up their own healthier eats. Rather than buying a $4 container of pre-made hummus with fillers and contributing to the accumulating plastic waste, you can just..
Make it yourself!
In keep with the holiday theme, I realized I had never done a butternut squash variety. This type has a flavor profile comparable to sweet potatoes, naturally sweet, and just compliments so many fall winter dishes. Knowing that I instantly knew it would be a game changing recipe. In terms of adding flavor to hummus or any dish for that matter, I love to infuse oils. Rather than buying fancy oils or making them and risking them going rancid, you can easily infuse any oil! Simply add the oil to a pan with the fresh herbs, cook for a bit, discard the herbs and use as you see fit!
What’s fab about this hummus, is everything! It’s quick, easy, affordable, flavor packed, can easily be made in bulk, captures the essence of fall/winter, perf pairs with traditional bread or fresh veggies, is protein packed, filling, has a gorgeous color, the rosemary oil just puts it over the top!
