Easy Recipe: White Bean Hummus with Kale and Zucchini

Are you a hummus person?

My kids only like store-bought hummus!

Grrr. I’m really tempted to keep the container from the store-bought hummus use it for my homemade hummus to trick them. 😂

I like to prep a big batch of veggies every week making lunches and snacks easier for the kids when they’re learning at home.

Personally, I like homemade hummus and I wanted to try something new with the ingredients I had on hand. (Making a dip is a great way to use up leftover veggies in the fridge!)

Enter this White Bean Hummus with Kale and Zucchini!

This is a fresh hummus you can enjoy in the winter or summer months and it’s perfect to eat with all of your prepped veggies or even as a sandwich or wrap spread.

First, why make your own hummus?

  • Making hummus is easier than you think.
  • You can control the ingredients. Many store-bought hummus and dips contain canola and vegetable oils which aren’t good for our overall health.
  • Beans are a great option for added proteins and carbohydrates.
