This delicious, super nutritious twist on hummus is sure to be a star at your summer picnic. It’s loaded with fiber and B vitamins, thanks to the secret ingredient: nutritional yeast. Nutritional yeast is a dairy-free ingredient that can add the consistency and flavor of cheese to a vegan recipe! This satisfying dip also nets you the bonus benefits of white beans, a low-glycemic food packed with antioxidants and magnesium.
