I love to serve this green goddess hummus recipe with sliced bell peppers, carrot sticks, and cherry tomatoes. It is also excellent as a spread on a wrap. Turkey wraps with green goddess hummus can make such a quick and nourishing lunch. This recipe is so simple to make at home.
DITCH ALL PRESERVATIVE-LADEN STORE-BOUGHT HUMMUS
There is no need to buy pre-made hummus at the store, loaded with preservatives, and who knows what else. You can totally make this green goddess hummus recipe perfectly at home in almost no time. This is the best hummus recipe. I believe the quality of the ingredients matters when it comes to our nutritional needs. By meal prepping this hummus recipe in advance, not only is it a time-saver, but you won’t be left wondering about the nutritional ingredients added in. I love to sneak in as many nutrient-dense foods as possible. Let’s give a shout-out to the star ingredients.
Spinach is an excellent source of vitamins A, K1, and C, and rich in iron.
Tip: To increase the absorption of iron, pair iron-rich foods with foods rich in vitamin C. An example when serving this recipe is to serve the green goddess hummus with sliced bell peppers. One bell pepper has 74 mg of vitamin C.
Parsley is rich in vitamins A, C, and E. It helps fight water retention because it serves as a diuretic.
