How to Serve this Instant Pot Hummus

Instant Pot Hummus Falafel
  • You can serve with veggies, like carrot sticks, cucumber, celery, or any of your other favorite veggies!
  • Make some delicious Gluten Free Falafels or Pita Bread and serve with your homemade Hummus!
  • Use on wraps or sandwhiches, or other healthy recipes!

Why do we add baking soda?

Baking Soda is used to help break down the skin on the outside of the Garbanzo Beans – so you don’t need to remove the skins, which allows it to blend more smoothly!
