Cranberry hummus

November 14, 2018

I have a confession to make, I am not really a fan of hummus, it’s the chickpeas, I don’t really care for the taste or the texture. With the U.S Thanksgiving approaching, I wanted to create an easy appetizer dish to serve to guests that was point friendly, I was playing around with some cranberry ideas and then despite my dislike for hummus this recipe popped into my head 😉 So I decided to go for it, this was so easy to put together and can be on the table in 10 minutes. Considering I am not a hummus lover I actually did’nt mind this, the cranberry taste is nice and bold and it came together quite nicely. I did however consult with a hummus loving neighbor who gave it two thumbs up! The whole dish is just 4 smart points, making a generous serving of 1/4 of the dish just 1 point of WW freestyle.

    The recipe sounds delicious, and posted properly. But the “Notes” section is mostly just gobbledygook – something must have gone wrong when you posted it.
