Raise your hand if you love hummus or Ranch dip! We combine the two for a tasty Ranch Hummus Dip that kids and adults will love. Grab some veggies and get ready to dip!
Hummus is a tasty dip that’s made appearances across supermarkets and restaurants everywhere over the past couple years. While this versatile bean dip might seem complicated to make, it’s actually very simple and requires just a few ingredients.
Did you know chickpeas (or garbanzo beans) are one of the oldest consumer drops in the world? And for good reason! Chickpeas are a great source of plant-based protein, fiber, iron, zinc, B vitamins and more.
Nutrition Tip: Chickpeas are a healthy and sustainable source of plant protein plus fiber that kids really need. Chickpeas also pack iron and zinc, which kids need as they’re growing, and even a little bit of calcium.
There are many variations on this spreadable dip (see below for additional recipe ideas), but my favorite way to use hummus is as a dip for veggies. The following recipe has quickly made its way up to the top spot as my all-time favorite hummus recipe.
