Ingredients

Instructions

  • If you are making homemade vegan blue cheese dressing, follow these directions. Store in the refrigerator until ready to use. Note that the flavor is best if you let the dressing chill for at least 2 hours. If you are using store-bought, skip to the next step.
  • Add the chickpeas, aquafaba, Buffalo sauce, garlic, lemon juice and salt to the bowl of your food processor. Begin processing on low speed, slowly adding olive oil through the feed tube while processing. After the olive oil has been added, process on high speed until smooth and creamy and no chunks remain. You may have to stop to scrape down the sides and then continue processing until the hummus has a smooth consistency.
  • Transfer to a serving bowl. Use a spoon to make a well in the middle of the hummus. Fill the well with the vegan blue cheese dressing. Garnish with additional Buffalo sauce and scallions or chives.
