It’s been one of those weeks. Michael had the stomach flu over the weekend, and Milo is fighting an ear infection. We’ve both had heavy workloads and no one, it seems, remembers how to sleep through the night.

And sometimes when everyone is sick or the world is crashing down, one of the most healing tools I have available is food.  Sometimes, that’s choosing to bake up a big batch of fudgy brownies or warm chocolate chip cookies and ride the wave. Other times, it means making something really nourishing, like a big salad or a lovely batch of hummus.

Bright, happy lemon hummus is the perfect veggie dip, sandwich spread, or topping for chicken.
This lemon hummus is one of my favorites this year. It’s like a happy dose of sunshine. It uses the same base as my Artichoke and Olive Hummus, with a bright citrus twist. It’s fabulous with veggies, as a spread for wraps, or dolloped on top of grilled chicken.

The hummus comes together in just a few minutes. I know the measurements by heart so it literally takes me 3-4 minutes TOPS to pull together in the blender, and if I wash, slice and dice up a few different veggies to store in the refrigerator, my lunch is mostly made for the week!

Make a batch of this lemon hummus and you can have a healthy lunch all week long!

How to change things up:

Get fresh.  Add a handful of fresh herbs–basil, cilantro, parsley, whatever you like. Lemon pairs so nicely with so many herbs!

Gah-lick. Try adding a little roasted or fresh garlic. I looove the flavor this adds.

Spice it up! Add a pinch (or two or three) of red chili flakes. A little bit of heat with the citrusy goodness is all kinds of wonderful.

Go smoky. Try adding a pinch of smoked paprika along with the cumin. It’s not really spicy, but adds some lovely depth.

Grab some veggies and dive into this lemon hummus! It's the perfect vegan, gluten free lunch idea!
