With a side of Original Recipe or Black Garlic hummus, your egg or avo savory waffles will be slammin!
Red Cabbage Slaw with Black Garlic Dressing
Here’s another great vegetarian Easter dinner idea—no ham, chicken, or any other meat. This slaw consists of shredded red cabbage and carrot, green onion, a Black Garlic hummus-based dressing, and a topping of cilantro and dry roasted peanuts. You can easily fit this into your Easter dinner side dishes, or serve it up for lunch or brunch.
Jalapeño Red Deviled Eggs
Deviled eggs may be the king of Easter recipes. Easy to make, super filling, and a crowd pleaser. You can cook up your own deviled eggs this year, but why not add some heat? Mixing the yolks with Jalapeño Red hummus increases protein and bumps up the heat. Or if you want a vegan option, try our Deviled Red Potatoes with Original Recipe hummus!
