Green Hummus Dip

Have a look at our post on why we love dips so much and why dips are great for kids. This is a green goodness twist on the classic hummus. We recently asked you on our Facebook page what your kids favourite dips were. Hummus was a stand out. Perfect on sandwiches, on its own, or used as a dip, but you can also add other veggies to the humble hummus to make something new and delicious. We love the addition of green goodness vegetables, they also make for a great coloured dip which the kids will love.

Nutrition Note: A percentage of many vitamins, minerals and antioxidants are lost when cooking vegetables so using raw broccoli and zucchini in this recipe maximises their nutrient content.

      Hi Kylie, always best on the day but this would keep for around 2 days i’d say before separating :) Enjoy, Ax

    Avocado also works really well in hummus and makes it nice and creamy. Good fats too!
