On today’s episode of Live Lean TV, I’m showing you how to make an easy hummus recipe in a blender.
Yes, we’re cooking up something special today.
This was a request from a Live Lean TV viewer named Peggy.
Peggy asked for a healthy dip recipe that you can dip your vegetables in.

Now you may be asking…
Why would you make your own homemade hummus when it’s so quick and easy to buy store bought hummus?
Well this hummus recipe is also very quick and simple, so anyone can make it.
Plus, this easy hummus recipe is made with real, whole food ingredients, that will add delicious flavor to your food, without adding extra unhealthy calories.
A lot of store bought hummus, sauces, and dips contain unhealthy ingredients, preservatives, and sulfites.
That’s why I love taking control of the ingredients that I put in my body by making my own quick and simple recipes.
Don’t believe me?
Check out the ingredients below and lets get cooking!
Once the hummus is made, what do you do with it and how do you eat it?
Sure you can just stick your finger in it…damn that’s good!
But it’s best when you add some crunchy vegetables like celery, carrots, or any of your favorite dipping vegetables.
And if you love your carbs (and earned them), you can have a healthier Ezekiel bread and whole wheat pita for your finger foods to dip into the hummus.
Look how much hummus this recipe makes from just that small amount of ingredients.
Much better than a bag of potato chips…c’mon!
You can also use this easy hummus recipe as a healthy condiment or spread for your burger toppings.
This is just another great way to cook in bulk and get your food prepped for the week.
