The first week of February is here and that means it’s time for Super Bowl Sunday! For anyone who is watching the game or getting together with friends I thought I’d develop a simple healthy recipe that could be thrown together in minutes.
This 3 Ingredient Buffalo Hummus is a little different than your average hummus. While the consistency is similar, it’s made with cannellni beans instead of chickpeas to give off a more neutral flavor. That’s where the buffalo sauce comes in. Packed with flavor, 1/4 of a cup of your favorite buffalo sauce will do it for this recipe. The third and final ingredient is olive oil which will be added to make the dip even creamier.
While you can find buffalo wing sauce at almost every grocery, not all sauces are created alike. Be sure to the check the ingredients and look for a brand that doesn’t use additives and/or questionable ingredients.
Pair this buffalo hummus with your favorite veggies and chips for a healthy snack option on Super Bowl Sunday. For added decadence, use a fork to drizzle blue cheese or ranch dressing across the top of the hummus and garnish with scallions or chives.
