Who loves hummus! Another one of my favourites to always have in the fridge. I use it as a dip to snack on with raw vegetables and crackers, I add it to sandwiches, wraps and burgers, and even use it as a side to meals or on top of salads. This Cashew Hummus is so smooth and tasty it is hard not to add it to everything!

I prefer usingΒ cashews instead of a traditional chickpea recipe because it avoids the starchiness of chickpeas which raise glucose levels in your blood. Alternatively, it is a great source of good healthy fats which, when added to meals will make you feel more satisfied and fuller for longer. Plus is tastes better to! I Cannot wait for you all to try this one.
