It’s this simple: bring Smoky Bacon Flavored Hummus to any party and you’re an instant BADASS! I apologize in advance for the soreness from all the handshakes, high fives and slaps on the back.
So, where did I get the inspiration for this amazing idea?
First of all, I agree with you. It is a pretty amazing idea. Second, and to answer your original question, the idea came from my Smoky Maple Tempeh Bacon. I thought, “If it works for tempeh, it’ll work with chickpeas.” It just seemed to make sense there should be a bacon flavored hummus.
Why? Because who doesn’t love something smoky, sweet and savory? It’s just that some of us don’t want to get it from a pig’s gut.
And, how easy is it? Super easy! You never have to turn on an oven or stove top. You just throw all the ingredients into a food processor and watch the blade of fortune turn.
It’s time you stopped complaining about not being noticed. You can know how it feels to be a BOSS. “How?”, you ask.
The next time you attend a “get together” or work party, show up with this smoky bacon flavored hummus and watch what happens. Don’t be surprised if you get promoted or become the most popular person in the neighborhood.
Greatness doesn’t take years to achieve. It takes about TEN MINUTES with just a few ingredients.
