Gluten Free Hummus

mmuHummus is naturally gluten free, however, adding a wrong ingredient can send someone with a high gluten-intolerance into a world spin. This gluten free hummus is sweetened with pineapple juice and vinegar (due to my citrus allergies) rather than lemon juice, but feel free to use either. Hummus does not keep well. Therefore, ensure its refrigeration as soon as possible. I made some homemade gluten-free tortilla chips which was a wonderful compliment to this gluten-free hummus, as they were nice and spicy! Enjoy!
