Black Bean Hummus

I’ve been doing lots of wraps lately. I decided to do a different version of hummus so I didn’t get burned out on the traditional stuff. Yum. Great smeared in a wrap or simply served as a dip with bread or chips. Print Black Bean Hummus Author: Next Good Meal Serves: 8   Ingredients 3 cups black […]

Peanut Sauce

I’m happy with this batch. The taste is yummy. I was able to transfer some of it back into the empty honey squeeze container. It filled that, a peanut butter jar, and still had 3 single serves left in the bowl. One of those servings was claimed immediately by the 2yo for use with tofu […]

Peanut Sauce
