cucumber-hummus

Cucumber hummus. It’s something many of you have probably ever had and I can’t wait to share this with you!

When Melissa from My Whole Food Life sent me her cookbook, Easy Whole Vegan, I was so excited to try this recipe. I’ve never made cucumber hummus before but THIS, THIS, THIS is so good! It’s not as thick and pasty as hummus usually is. It’s lighter and creamier and so tasty. I know you’re going to love it!

Think garlic, tahini, chickpeas, cucumbers and lots of other goodies all piled into this recipe. It’s something that you can serve as an appetizer for your crackers (I used Go Raw grain-free gluten-free crackers shown in my pictures) or veggies. You can also use this hummus as a spread in place of mayo on sandwiches! It’s loaded with flavor and fiber so it’s a win-win.

Melissa’s cookbook is full of beautiful, plant-based recipes that are amazing. She’s a wiz at dairy-free recipes and especially desserts. She has a real gift for making creative desserts that make me drool! Check out her new cookbook, Easy Whole Vegan below. I know you’ll find a lot of goodies that you can make for yourself, when you’re entertaining or for a pot luck.

Enjoy!

Hi, I'm Amie!

I’m here to share my story of healing with you. I know what it’s like to suffer and not know what’s going on with your body. I’ve been there. I was lost, searching for answers and alone for 10 years until I learned how to get my body working for me, not against me—to address the underlying symptoms instead of using a Band-aid approach to reclaim my vitality. I want to show you that eating and living clean feels incredible. Once you see life this way, you’ll never go back. Ever. Come play along with me on Instagram, Pinterest, Facebook and Twitter.
I’m here for you. xo
