The hemp seeds seem to be a hit, glad you like them! Enjoy Terri. 🙂
We are a hummus loving family here as well, Joss. I am inspired by your unique toppings (my daughter does something similar on a wooden platter with mixed olives, pine nuts, and tiny tom tomatoes as toppings) – hemp seeds are absolutely brilliant! I will try it 🙂 This is making me hungry for hummus.
Those sound like excellent hummus toppings, it’s always great to try new things! Thanks for the comment Denise and enjoy your hummus. 🙂

I usually make a batch of hummus every weekend as my husband takes it to work as a snack or even lunch sometimes. Love the toppings you added to this one. I’ve never thought to add hemp seeds, but it would make it extra filling, so I’ll have to give it a try! Thanks for the inspo Joss!
Thanks Leanne and no problem! The hemp seeds also had crunch and health benefits, so they are great in the hummus. We make a lot of hummus in this household as well, hope your hubby likes it!
