BEAT THE HEAT HUMMUS

The heat can be stifling at times, so creating those no-heat-needed meals is key for staying cool when you feel like a sweaty betty :). This hummus is a satisfying blend of quality tahini paste (Soom, my favorite brand, which I have previously mentioned), chickpeas of course, and adding a couple of tablespoons of the Summer Vinaigrette above, for a spectacular sizzle. Serve with fresh veggies and whole grain pita or crackers, or spread on your favorite wrap, add lots of veggies, and lunch or dinner is served.
