Broccoli hummus

Written by Veronica Lavenia

Broccoli hummus is such a great and creative idea I suggest you to try.

Autumn and winter version for a great recipe to taste as an appetizer or snack. The addition of broccoli makes this hummus ideal for healthy and balanced nutrition. Seasonal broccoli, possibly organic, are the key to a successful dish.
