Best Ever Hummus

Best. Ever. Hummus.

A bold declaration? Perhaps. But oh so true.

I consider myself a hummus aficionado. I’ve been around the block with hummus recipes, so believe me when I say this recipe is all kinds of awesome. The extra twists of miso and hot sauce make it magical! Don’t worry, it still tastes like traditional hummus, but with a boost of extra flavour and zing.

I used sprouted chickpea miso here, which makes this recipe soy-free. But I know it can be hard to find, so feel free to sub regular miso instead.
