(Naturally) Gluten Free Hummus with Balsamic Vinegar


We have very cool friends for neighbors.  Sherry and Ray live down the street from us.  Too far to stick your arm out the window for a cup of sugar, but close enough to wander down for one of their fabulous get togethers.  Sherry and Ray recently hosted a Snuggie Party at their abode.  Yes, a Snuggie Party.  For those of you who do not obsessively watch infomercials, the Snuggie is infamously known as “a blanket with sleeves”.  According to my son (an infomercial junkie), I also need a Hoveround electric chair, several Sham Wows, and Urine Be Gone.

We excitedly donned our Snuggies (the kids put on their pjs) and headed over to Sherry and Ray’s house for a snugtastic time (yes, I went there!).  When I realized Sherry’s delicious hummus was naturally gluten free, I quickly gobbled up most of it myself.  After a few glasses of wine and a secret Snuggie handshake, Sherry  kindly shared her hummus recipe.


White Bean Hummus with Balsamic Vinegar

1 19-ounce can of White Cannelini Kidney Beans
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
2 1/2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1/2 tablespoon minced garlic (I used roasted garlic)
Sea salt & pepper to taste

Using a colander, drain and rinse beans. Add all ingredients to a food processor. Blend until hummus is smooth and creamy. Serve with veggies, corn chips, or use in place of mayo on a sandwich!

  1. I’ve been eating the heck out of the store-bought hummus lately. So great to have a recipe. Thanks for sharing.

    The Snuggies are so funny. I first saw the commercial while I was at the gym, and laughed so hard that everyone around me started staring. The red one looks like a monk robe to me.

  2. Thanks for the recipe, it will be nice to make it myself for a change, a chance to impress my wife!

    P.S the Snuggies look great!

  3. One of my biggest weakness’s is humous so it is nice to have my own recipe, instead of having to go to the store. Thanks so much for the recipe!

  4. I am not really that health conscious but i’m just a bit curious. I’ve been reading a lot about gluten and how good it is to be not in the food being served. Why? What does gluten do to the body?


  5. I love this and am inspired! My sister introduced me to the “Princess Day” where we all wear our crowns as we go about our day together and I am going to have the “Princess Snuggie” party where I will make this wonderful hummus and serve it to my fellow princesses!

    Thank you for the LOL!
    God Bless,
