For my plant-based friends, here is an oil-free Smoked Paprika Hummus recipe full of flavor. Paprika also adds a unique color to this delicious spread.
Hey there, it’s me and I’ve got another bean-based recipe for you with this Smoked Paprika Hummus. I used canned, cooked chickpeas, and I sometimes find that the canned beans are easier to digest than when I home cook them. Also, I think blending beans into a hummus or spread also increases their digestibility.
Have you ever had smoked or sweet paprika? It provides the most wonderful flavor. I was lucky enough to enjoy it during my travels to Budapest, Hungary. It’s a delightful spice that it underused in the States!Print

I wanted to note that I’ve heard some concern that smoked paprika might not be healthful taking into account the smoked aspect (i.e. smoking foods increases carcinogens which we then consume). If you have this concern about paprika, then I might suggest that you simply substitute sweet paprika for the smoked variety.
