Here is a quick and easy recipe from our Renal Care 360° dietitian for hummus. Chickpeas are a tasty source of plant-based protein, and when you blend them up with a couple of other ingredients you have the tastiest dip for veggies or pita. You can even use it as a spread on sandwiches or toast. This hummus is great for parties and for hosting guests as well.
This recipe has no added salt, so the flavor comes from garlic, cumin, and smoked paprika. Feel free to add as much or as little as you like.
