Butter Chickpea Hummus (Gluten Free/Vegan/Dairy Free)


I have been making lots of hummus lately, and it is awesome. It’s a great way to get your protein intake for the meal/day, plus it tastes great! This particular one has the wonderful flavors of butter chicken, but without the meat!

Once again, this is an amazingly simple hummus to make. Yes, it requires a bit of cooking, but it is worth it. After the aromatics are cooked and sauted with the tomatoes, you simply add everything together and blend. I got the recipe for the tandoori spice mix I used here.
