Actually, I don’t know what I created.
I’ve had this vision for a cheesy hummus made with nutritional yeast for a while now. I wasn’t sure how it would manifest, but how could it not work? My plan was to process together chickpeas, yeast, salt, pepper and olive oil. I pureed that in the Cuisinart for a while and created a…dough!?!?!
The big ball just would not cream out. I tried adding water…then about 1/3 a cup of peanut butter. If it was going to be dough, it should at least taste good! I considered baking it into cookies, but I doubt they would have tasted very good. I added a little sugar and then called it cookie dough hummus. And ate it!
The result was what I would describe as: Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Hummus
-The texture of cookie dough.
-The slight flavor of peanut butter.
-The earthiness and beaniness of hummus.
I don’t realllllly recommend this, but if you’re curious blend together:
- 1.5 cups chickpeas
- 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tbsp water
- Salt + pepper pinches
- 1/3 cup creamy peanut butter
- 1 tbsp regular white sugar
Not exactly mouth watering, but not bad either!
I served it as I would hummus on top of a big vegetable-y + sweet potato salad with a side of Cville Crunch bread.

This morning I ran to the gym and did a 75 minute vinyasa yoga class taught by Eliza, a sub in for Pilar. I love the class – the room was warm, the music was on, the flow was good, Eliza’s voice was good, I was tired, I slightly broke a sweat. Good times!!! Wish Eliza was a regular teacher at my gym! Sadly she doesn’t have a regular class.
This day is slipping away – I still haven’t showered and Matt and I have a shopping date!
