Quick, easy, and totally tasty, these healthy hummus stuffed peppers are sure to be a hit at your next party!
The interwebs needs another hummus recipe like I need a need another pint of Ben and Jerry’s birthday cake ice cream [lies; I must have more!] so I got creative. After all, I think we all could use another healthy snack for our faces.
Ok, fine… a healthy snack AND a pint of birthday cake deliciousness. Balance: it’s delicious!
If you find that your good intentions to scoop your hummus with an array of healthy sliced veggies always seems to be led astray by crusty bread, this is for you. If you can’t seem to wind up any which way other than staring down an empty container of hummus covered in crumbs at the bottom of a bag of pita chips, this is for you. If you just really want some effing veggies, then this is clearly for you.
If you really just want to be left alone with a full bowl of hummus and
your feelings a spoon… I’ll leave you to that. I’ve been there.
