Are you a hummus fan?

I am not a big fan of plain chickpea hummus, however I love flavored hummus. In fact, I’ve already make a few you might like to try:

Hummus Recipes

Flavored Hummus

Although I like hummus, I never buy the store bought versions, because I am not a huge fan of tahini and I usually find it overpowering in those versions. In mine, I go light on the tahini and in fact, the Spinach Hummus referenced above contains no tahini at all so it is allergen free for those with nut/seed allergies. However, you can customize this recipe as you like and if you are one of those tahini lovers, have at it and go crazy!

Hummus Party Platter Ideas

Flavored Hummus is a great way to make a party platter. I usually make a triad of hummus flavors. With the use of canned chickpeas, these come together so quickly. Just add your favorite veggie, desired amount of tahini, cumin, paprika, parsley, lemon juice and garlic. Serve with pita and party platter done!

However, hummus can be used for so much more as dip with chips or pita bread.

7 Ways to Use Hummus

  • Pasta Sauce (thin it out with a little water if necessary)
  • Sandwich Spread
  • Dip
  • Base for Creamy Salad Dressing
  • Healthy Mashed Potatoes (replace the milk/cream with hummus)
  • Healthy Deviled Eggs (replace the mayo with hummus)
  • Sour Cream replacement (wherever sour cream is used as a binder in recipes, replace with healthy hummus)

You can customize and add other spices as you desire. Fennel is a spice that goes very well with carrots. So I added some fennel to add a slightly different flavor profile. This also keeps it interesting so if you are serving several different kinds of hummus, play around with the spices a little so they don’t end up tasting too similar, despite the use of different vegetables.

That extra garnish of olive oil and sumac makes all the difference!
