So you’ve decided to have guests over. Obviously you want to prepare something delicious, but healthy… but still tasty… what do you do? Bake some chicken breasts with a bunch of spices and serve with a side of steamed veggies?
That’s always an option, but if you really want to wow your guests, we’ve got easy and entertaining dinner recipes that will have people cleaning their plates. And best of all, they’re super healthy—because they contain hummus!
As we’ve mentioned before, hummus is an incredible superfood dip. Packed with protein, complex carbohydrates, heart-healthy fats, fiber, and tons of vitamins and minerals, hummus brings a variety of nutrients to your dinner party recipes. In fact, it’s a staple food in the Mediterranean Diet, which was just ranked #1 amongst healthy diets by US News Health! However, your dinner party menu for 6 doesn’t have to feature Mediterranean food, especially when there are so many delicious hummus flavors to complement any dish.
Easy, Entertaining Dinner Party Recipes
Given that hummus has become an international sensation, we figured we’d give you a variety of recipes from around the world! But no matter where they’re from, they have one thing in common: USDA Certified Organic HOPE Hummus, made with no unhealthy preservatives or additives. If you’re going through the effort to make good food for the people you love, you might as well make sure you use the very best ingredients.
You can make these easy dinner party recipes for 8, 6, or even 4 people—although once you serve them, be prepared, because your dinner get togethers won’t stay small for long
If you need smooth flavor and rich texture for your easy entertaining dinner recipes, look no further than a tasty pesto. But thankfully, you don’t need tons of olive oil, parmesan, and high-carb pasta to make a pesto dish… just use a Kale Pesto hummus sauce with zucchini noodles and roasted Brussels sprouts. Your mouth will thank you—and your love handles will too!
You caught us… there isn’t any hummus in this one. Instead these delicious veggie-filled quesadillas are paired with HOPE Green Chile Guacamole, salsa, and microgreens. If you want, throw in some roasted chicken or carnitas for added protein.
Everyone loves a fresh Mexican-inspired dish. With that in mind, our flavor creators dreamed up this veggie dish that we love for dinner parties. Fill radicchio shells with sliced red onion, avocado, microgreens, radishes, almond milk yogurt, jalapeño, and a healthy serving of Spicy Avocado hummus. Serve with cilantro and lime wedges, and you’re ready to fiesta
Steak is definitely an all-American dish, but we’ve amped up the creativity with this vegan dinner party menu for 6. Much healthier than red meat, not to mention it’s a lot cheaper to make! Simply cut whole cauliflower heads into slices and bake them with salt and pepper and spices, then lay them on top of Buffalo Bleu hummus and garnish with roasted chickpeas. Grab your cauliflower steak knife and enjoy!
With these recipes, you’re all set for a casual dinner menu party for 8. You can make as much or as little as you want! And the best part?
