Silky Hummus (Gluten, Yeast, Dairy FREE)

wheat free, yeast free, dairy free,
Did you know that people who regularly eat hummus tend to have smaller waists and healthier diets overall according to a new study in the Journal of Nutrition & Food Sciences found!
But why is hummus such a super food? For a start it is loaded with slow-digesting carbs, belly-filling fibre, and protein to help you stay satisfied longer! Now that's what I call a perfect snack. If you haven't got time to make hummus then look for one mades with olive oil instead of a cheap substitute. I prefer Marks & Spencer as the sugar content is low too. Really you can make hummus in no time at all so why not try this yummy silky hummus recipe and serve it with celery or carrots sticks, mid morning, afternoon or evening:-)
