Hummus, a chickpea-based Middle Eastern dip, is a favorite for many. Its most common use is as a dip for vegetables or pita bread, but there are so many other possibilities for this delicious food!
Why not break away from the same old uses and try these ingenious ways to use hummus in the kitchen?
One way hummus can be incorporated into everyday dishes is as a sandwich spread. If you make a cucumber and tomato sandwich, for example, why not give it a little more body and flavor by heaping on a dollop of hummus?
Hummus-based salad dressings are one of my favorite ways to give my salads a little bit of pizzazz. All you really have to do is add a little bit of lemon juice, water, and olive oil to normal hummus to give it the consistency of a salad dressing. You’ll be surprised at how great it works.
This might sound crazy, but hear me out. What if you skipped the tomato sauce and used hummus as the sauce base for your pizza? It works so well, especially when you choose to top it with vegetables like broccoli, onion, and tomato.
