WATCH – Why You Should Make Your Own Hummus

Today I accomplished a very important feat. I called out a very popular brand of hummus owned by Pepsi Co. who donated over 1.7 million against GMO labeling on a major NBC local news network, all while sharing one of my favorite recipes ever.

Talk about killing two birds with one stone!

Watch it all unfold below in a live cooking segment on Charlotte Today

    A question about the beans. I buy in bulk so my garbanzos are dried. I am wondering if canned beans are cooked or just soaked? Can I get a good consistency from raw, sprouted garbanzos?

    Best hummus to use is Cedar’s!! They’re non-gmo verified:) I’m too lazy to mix up my own hummus and cedars is so delicious!

    Do the beets have to be cooked or are they raw?

    Tahini is so easy to make and expensive to buy. Why not add sesame seeds, lemon juice and more olive oil and spices instead?
