Homemade Spicy Hummus

Homemade hummus is a bold investment. A jar of tahini isn’t cheap, a ~15 oz. jar is around $6. BUT once you’ve invested in that jar, hummus is just a few small steps away! (You can get +15 servings of hummus for one jar of tahini) Overall you can save if you home make your hummus. Plus if you’re like me and Mike, you don’t like/always want the same flavors. So homemaking hummus let’s you control the amount you make. No more wasting hummus or eats flavors you don’t love!

Where I found my heart and soul and where I transitioned from vegetarian to vegan.

One of the best things about Northampton is that everyone knows a vegan so most restaurants offer a couple of vegan items.

 

This list just covers the places I went to with some regularity, but this is by no means an exhaustive list of restaurants where you can find vegan food in Northapmton. And, since this list is in no particular order, I’ve bolded the restaurants that I would highly recommend.
