Protein Hummus

Hummus is hard for me, I love it but the protein and carb ratio is hard for me to eat it. I know it’s good carbs so every often I will have some. Then I had an epiphany why not add plain protein powder into the hummus and up the protein in this great snack.

I also just recently started using veggies to replace chips in my favorite dishes. You might remember the Baked Pepper Nachos I made recently. So now I can have a great dip to eat with pepper “chips” or now I’m loving snow pea “chips”.

This is a very basic recipe, but you could really spice it up. You could add roasted red peppers, more garlic, more spices, or anything else to make your own version. This recipe would be great for a lunch, side dish, or just a snack!
