Hummus is one of the most popular spreads all around the world, even though it is a Middle Eastern staple. Although you can find this dip in almost every grocery store, most of the time you’ll need to give it a little boost. Whether you decide to make it yourself or opt for the store bought option, here are certain tricks that will liven up the flavor and impress your tastebuds.

Store Bought

Store-bought hummus is definitely the easier option, but you should definitely take a few minutes to take it up a notch without hardly any effort. Even just drizzling the top with olive oil and adding some spices like paprika or zaatar will make it look more beautiful and taste better.


Most of the flavor of hummus actually comes from this sesame paste, so whether you’re buying it or making it, it will sure add a ton of flavor to your dip. You can either mix it in with the hummus or leave it in the middle of the bowl and you will be amazed by how much better your hummus will be. 

Roasted Chickpeas

Boosting the flavor in your foods with garnishes is how the pros do it, and so can you! Since hummus is a chickpea base, through on some roasted chickpeas on top and give the people what they want. They are crunchy, beautiful, and will put your hummus over the top.
