Description

Hummus makes for a great snack, it is full of plant-based protein from the chickpeas. You can serve it with veggies and crackers for a healthy appetizer while entertaining. Mutabel is another great dip for entertaining, it is made from eggplant for an earthy and bold flavor. You can use both of these as a bold addition to a sandwich, just use them as a spread in place of mayo or mustard.
