Picnic season is upon us, and if there’s one thing that no al-fresco lunch is complete without, it’s big dollops of tasty hummus complete with crunch crudités. It’s also International Hummus Day on 13th May, so to celebrate we’ve created three super-tasty and superpowered hummus recipes to show you just how versatile this snack can be.


There’s one packed with kale, one with a boost, and another enriched with maca. Each recipe is packed with unique health benefits and is super simple to make - just whizz up the ingredients and select your chosen dippers.
