Cashew Nut Hummus

Why We Love It: If you are plant-based or trying to eat less meat and more plants, hummus should be a staple in your fridge because it's easy and healthy. Hummus is an anti-inflammatory snack that is packed with protein and fiber.

NOTE: If you are allergic to nuts just take them out of the recipe!
