Cranberry Hummus Sauce Surprise

Surprise… It’s Cranberry Hummus!

“Eeew”, she said, scrunching her nose. “That doesn’t sound good!”

My daughter, Devani and I were talking about hummus recipes and how it might be used for the holidays, especially as a healthy protein for vegetarians like us. I searched—and found—a Cranberry Hummus recipe on AboutFood.com, and that’s what Devani was responding too, because it didn’t sound good.

So… we tried it and surprise!… it’s awesome!

The lesson? Sometimes it’s nice to try mixing up some of your favorite recipes to satiate the need for something new.  Even if it’s not a Holiday occasion, this would be a fun twist on a classic hummus dip for any house party, picnic, or just a snack for kids.

In fact, it would probably taste great on a bagel as a substitute for cream cheese.
