My youngest son is vegetarian. I cook vegetarian meals for him daily, but sometimes when time is limited or I don’t feel like cooking, I wish I could reach to the freezer and bake some chicken nuggets and call it a day! I did that for my oldest son but for the little one, it is important I find vegetarian meals and snacks that are tasty and nutritious.

This creamy Avocado Hummus recipe is made in less than 10 minutes! Add the ingredients into a food processor and whip up this vegan dip in no time! Just a handful of ingredients produces the most delicious healthy veggie dip perfect to serve with many of Dr. Praeger’s wonderful products.
