Buffalo Wing Hummus and a Giveaway!

It’s Football Sunday! In many households across the country, people gather with family/friends infront of the TV to watch their favorite NFL teams play. And it wouldn’t be complete without lots of good eats. “Football foods” are a favorite among many, and there are lots of different things to choose from – even healthy options!


My friend Nicole recently had an amazing cookbook published. She is a Registered Dietician who has created many recipes based on different dietary needs. There are lots of delicious ones to choose from, not only on her blog, but in this cookbook. Like this buffalo wing hummus. Talk about eating guilt free without sacrificing taste. Not many football foods fall under that category. I made this for a party and everyone gobbled it up…it was a huge hit!


Have you seen her book on the shelves yet? Or online? Take a look at how pretty this cover is. Can you believe those donuts are actually healthy?? Yum.


I made a few more recipes as well and I’ll be sharing them here in the coming weeks. Meanwhile, in honor of Nicole’s huge achievement, I’m giving away a copy of this awesome cookbook! So how can you win it? It’s easy!

Visit Nicole’s blog, find a recipe you’d love to try, and head back here to leave me your answer in a comment below. Giveaway ends at midnight on Friday, September 20th (open to US residents only). Congrats again to Nicole on this wonderful accomplishment! 🙂

Buffalo Wing Hummus
slightly adapted from PreventionRD’s Everyday Healthy Cooking

2 cans chickpeas, drained and rinsed

1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
1 1/2 teaspoons paprika
3 tablespoons zero calorie wing sauce
2 tablespoons tabasco sauce
1 tablespoon white vinegar
1/2 teaspoon salt

Put all ingredients in a food processor. Puree until desired consistency is reached (I like my hummus more on the thick side, but keep going if you want it more creamy!).

Makes 12 servings (1/4 cup each)
