Green Garbanzo Hummus #SundaySupper

So my obsession with Green Garbanzo continues with my second recipe and this time I’ve made a delicious Hummus!!All it needs is a few minutes in the microwave and its ready to be used. l love the texture and the lovely green color that just brightens up your party platter!It even ties with our spring theme this #SundaySupper!

I’ve combined these with garlic and some EVOO and you just can’t beat the flavors!The Garbanzos are a little dry and need some water to help puree them but the result is fantastic!It takes minutes to make and is the perfect alternative to the traditional humus and more healthier since its full of vitamins and fiber!Serve it with pita or tortilla chips and you have one easy appetizer dip that’s different and so tasty :)

    I made hummus too this weekend- avocado and cannelloni beans it turned out delicious. I have never worked with green garbanzo beans, thanks for new ideas and tips for adding water-I sometimes to add couple drops warm water and it makes final result fluffier

    Your hummus is a celebration of springtime in an appetizer, Soni! Love that it is actually good for you…and a great way to sneak in protein into the diets of family members who are strictly vegetarian. Thanks so much =)

    Soni, I love this take on the traditional hummus. I’ve been wanting to make my own hummus for the longest time but can’t find any dried chickpeas (everyone online says making it with dried is better than the canned stuff so I’ve stayed away from the cans). I should just make your garbanzo version instead! Your photos are beautiful – I love that pop of green.

      Thanks Susan!It tastes just like a regular chickpea hummus although its a bit more dry hence requires more liquid to puree!Its more healthier and prettier though :)
