Hummus Soup, Vegan + Gluten-Free

Last week I found myself at the grocery store with a fussy baby, wandering the aisles thinking, what should I make for dinner?? I felt tired of all my winter weeknight go-to’s- chili, mac n’ cheese, macro plate– and decided to consult my long-running list of recipe ideas. I’ve had “hummus soup” written down for ages so I made some funny faces at my baby girl to keep her happy (which worked for about 30 seconds) and scrambled to come up with a plan for the ingredients.

Let me tell you, I’m so, so glad I finally got around to today’s Vegan, Gluten-Free Hummus Soup!

The photographs truly don’t do the recipe justice. Actually, scratch that- they make the recipe look like a regular old bowl of hummus (not that there is ever anything wrong with a bowl of hummus) but I promise it’s so much more!

If you like hummus you’ll love this soup. It’s so simple, it’s basically all the ingredients in hummus plus a creamy cauliflower base, with sauteed onions and garlic. It’s cozy, warming and filling.

I garnished mine with an extra lemon wedge, a scoop of sauerkraut, fresh dill and black pepper. The next day I mixed green lentils into the leftover soup and topped it with avocado and crackers- so hearty and delicious!
