Cooking with hummus. You may not have even thought to cook with the dip made from garbanzo beans, tahini, olive oil, and salt. If that’s the case, then you’re missing out. Hummus isn’t just used as a dip. “Ok”, you might be thinking, “hummus may be delicious to cook with, but only for dinner – you could never put it into desserts, right?” Wrong. Hummus makes truly scrumptious desserts! Don’t believe us? Let’s take a look at our catalog of recipes to make hummus dishes. We’ve created 38 recipes, and are constantly adding new, delicious ones to our list (so, keep on checking back – once you’ve cooked your way through these, there are sure to be more!).
Ten of Our Favorite Hummus Dishes

Pizza is at the top of the list of our favorite foods. Who doesn’t love a pizza topped with tasty ingredients like cheese, and roasted to perfection in the oven? This Roasted Butternut Squash+ Sage Pizza is made with (you guessed it!) hummus, as well as fresh sage, red onion, pine nuts, and arugula. Mmmm…is it dinner-time yet?
2. Lettuce Tacos with Sriracha Peanut Sauce
Sriracha sauce should be its own food group – we put it on almost everything. The best part is that it’s infused right into the humus you use for this recipe. You just blend up a few tasty ingredients with HOPE Sriracha Hummus, and then drizzle it over your tacos for the perfect dinner or appetizer.
3. Mango Jalapeno Cauliflower Wings

Here are a few tips to keep in mind as you bake and cook with humus:
– When Baking:
When you use this dip for baking, treat it an alternative to eggs. It acts as a binder, just like eggs do. Except, you don’t have all the extra cholesterol! (It’s also great if you have an allergy to eggs)
– Use this Dip Instead of:
You can use it as an alternative to may or cheese on a sandwich, or as a replacement for salad dressing. You’ll get an extra kick of protein along with added flavor!
