Chocolate chip cookie dough hummus.

You are saying to yourself one of two things: a) “Definitely YESSSS! That sounds amazing.” or b) “Just no.”

I am here to convince you category b, nay sayers that you are WRONG.  Chocolate chip cookie dough hummus is divine. Our planet will thank you too.

Last week SNP conducted a mini workshop and hosted chefs from Forward Food, the Humane Society’s division with the mission of adding more plant-based foods into everyday diets. Food Forward is doing extraordinary work providing resources to food service professionals from schools, hospitals, and restaurants (to name a few) that help to get more plant-based items on menus. Incorporating more plant-based foods can help create a better food system and reduce the environmental impact of industrial agriculture. The nutrition benefit to individuals can also be significant, reducing the risk for heart disease and diabetes.

SNP is grateful to have had the opportunity to get some plant based “inspo” and make this delicious hummus with Forward Food. The hummus was simple to make and will certainly peak the curiosity of students because…chocolate chips. And the smell is exactly like cookie dough! Enjoy.

The recipe yields 20 servings but can easily be quartered for home use.
