I put a seasonal holiday twist on one of favorite snacks – hummus!
I could seriously eat hummus everyday (I actually have been) by the spoon full. Because I have been eating so much hummus – I decided to change it up a bit and go with white beans instead of garbanzo beans. I’m working at Lululemon tomorrow and everyone has been bringing in holiday snacks to share. I definitely wanted to bring something fun and seasonal so cranberry orange hummus it is!!
Cranberry Orange White Bean Hummish
Prep/Cook Time – 15 minutes
Yields – approx. 2 cups
This hummus like bean dip is made with the seasonal flavors of cranberry and orange. It makes a great healthy snack or appetizer to bring to a holiday party. I used fresh cranberries to make a quick cranberry sauce, but you could also use leftover or canned cranberry sauce. I tried this dip so far with an apple and whole wheat crackers.
1 cup fresh cranberries (or cranberry sauce)
zest from 1 small orange
2-3 tablespoons juice from orange
1 heaping teaspoon chia seeds (optional, and can omit if using pre-made cranberry sauce)
