I love throwing parties! The thing I learned a long time ago is to make sure you make a lot of easy finger foods. This is important because if you spend your time making a bunch of complicated recipes, you’ll be so tired come party time, you won’t even enjoy it. Things that can be made the day before are even better. That way you get to enjoy the party too.
That’s one reason I love creating a simple hummus recipes, like this one!

Is Hummus Healthy?
People always make a big deal about protein. When you’re vegan it’s the question you hear most, “Where do you get your protein?” [insert eye roll here]
According to weight loss surgeon Dr. Garth Davis, the obsession with protein is a little misdirected. He suggests what we should be worried about is fiber. We get way more than enough protein in the US, but not nearly enough fiber.
I’ve been more than a little obsessed with fiber ever since.
Hummus delivers a healthy plant-based dose of both fiber and protein. Hummus is made from chickpeas which delivers 5 grams of protein and 4 grams of fiber in each half-cup serving. Not too shabby! That means if your goal is to get to 35 grams of fiber as Dr. Garth suggests, this Smoky Chipotle Hummus gets you a great start.
