Bangin’ “Change the World” Vegan Hummus Recipe

Bangin' "Change the World" Vegan Hummus Recipe

I was told recently that sometimes the candidness of tone which I use when talking with others about my views on animal rights can be "off-putting".  I was told that I should focus more on sharing recipes to change people's minds about animal cruelty, rather than speaking out vocally about the cruelty of factory farming, and that when consumers purchase factory farmed meat, they are voting with their dollar in favor of factory farming.  I disagree.  I think that while hummus is a delicious staple of the vegan diet (and, increasingly, for non-vegan folks too), it is important to be aware of both sides of the coin; exposing the truth of factory farming and the ways that our society and consumers support it, even if it is an uncomfortable conversation, is a very important one to have.  You never know whether it will be the delicious hummus recipe that turns people on to veganism, or the conversation about how consumers must assume responsibility for their purchases that will turn them off to factory-farmed meat.  Both are equally as important to put out there.  And, since I've done more than my share this week of the latter, I'll toss out this recipe for the former, just to have all the bases covered 🙂
