The BEST Hummus Recipe Ever! Homemade Parsley hummus is Made with Parsley and Chickpeas. Its a Great Way to Enjoy a Healthy Lunch or Healthy Snack

I just love hummus so much!  It makes great sandwiches like my hummus club sandwich or a perfect dip for veggies.

Homemade Hummus is even better because you can control the levels of spice and salt!

And, making hummus is not intimidating at all.  See just how easy it is to make.

Recently, I have discovered curly parsley and it is goooooood!  For the life of me, I don’t know why I haven’t used it more frequently in my cooking until now.

My curly parsley love affair started with my super simple navy beans salad and mushroom escargot recipes. If you can believe it, these cuties even found their way into many of the vegan tapas recipes.

Dip garlic pretzel chips in this hummus to make for a unique snack. It’s great to serve at game day parties.

The idea behind this post was to make a very easy hummus recipe using just a few ingredients.  I wanted this parsley hummus recipe to be just as easy as my beet hummus was to make.  The recipes are very similar when you start, but, take a different path half way through.

The parsley has a slight spice and tang to it and it is also rich in Vitamin K, C, and A.  It is a great way to dip your veggie snacks like carrots and cucumber.  Personally, I just devoured it by itself using nothing but a spoon!

There is nothing quite like the flavor of homemade hummus.  It tastes so fresh and unprocessed.  There is nothing wrong with store bought hummus, but, make your own if you have the time.  You will not regret making this parsley hummus!

If you have extra sesame seeds lying around, might I suggest this tahini recipe?  You can use it in falafals and it will remind you why you fell in love with it!

This hummus also happens to be vegan keto recipe, so feel free to make it frequently. It’s packed with good fats, healthy fats and can be used in many recipes.

What is your favorite way to use the curly parsley?

Great job on this yummy dip!
