- Eat it With Breakfast
In Eastern tradition, it’s common to incorporate hummus spread into all meals of the day — including breakfast. Hummus adds a creamy and tangy pack of protein and vitamins to any breakfast, making it a filling way to start your day. To incorporate hummus dip into your breakfast, take a flavored hummus such as roasted garlic hummus and top it with a fried egg and some avocado slices. Sprinkle with cheese and hot sauce, and you have a delicious and nutritious breakfast.
- Use it as a Filling
When combined with other ingredients or even by itself, hummus works excellent as a filler in dishes such as deviled eggs, stuffed mushrooms, and even stuffed zucchini boat. For a delicious filler, take roasted garlic hummus and mix with pesto, feta cheese, and place a few tablespoons of the mixture into a hollowed out zucchini half. Roast until golden and enjoy!
- Put it on a Pizza
We seldom think outside the box when it comes to pizza, but given its potential and versatility, we definitely should. Experiment with your toppings using roasted red pepper hummus instead of sauce, and topping with goat cheese and grilled veggies. If you’re feeling extra wild, add a fried egg for creaminess and texture. You really can’t go wrong with something as healthy and delicious as that!
- Use it as a Marinade
Did you know that hummus makes an excellent marinade for fish, beef, and chicken? To do this recipe, simply pick one of the many different flavors of hummus and coat the raw meat like you would a normal marinade. The results will astound you.
- Eat it as Dessert
Okay, stay with me here. Did you know that hummus can be made into a dessert. When preparing, combine the chickpeas with peanut butter, almond milk, maple syrup, a pinch of salt, cinnamon and cocoa powder. After blending until smooth, put in the fridge for at least an hour. You won’t believe how delicious your sweet hummus is. Dip apple slices or cookies into it, or just eat it with a spoon. Hey, we won’t tell anyone.
