If you’re looking for new and exciting recipes with hummus, you’ve come to the right place. We don’t want to brag, but we’ve always been about taking the traditional (hummus dip), and turning it into something exceptionally flavorful and unique (we have the most unique flavors on the market!) We take our healthy, tasty dip and add it into a wide variety of recipes – from savory to sweet. Here’s a look at our top 10 recipes using hummus:
1. Kale Pesto Penne with Roasted Tomatoes
Our first pick is this delicious penne (who doesn’t love Italian food? They really know what they’re doing when it comes to flavor combinations). The best part about this recipe is that you don’t even have to take out your food processor to make pesto: We’ve already done it for you. Simply take our Kale Pesto Hummus, and add it to pasta, and you’re all set!
2. Crunchy + Creamy Green Beans
This recipe is super simple, and makes a great side dish. Green bean dishes can get a bit boring (we all love green bean casserole – but sometimes you want to switch it up a bit). This recipe calls for our Original Hummus, which lends a rich, flavorful base for the sauce. You’ll be eating these green beans for every meal except breakfast!
3. Roasted Creamy Cauliflower Soup
Of all our recipes with hummus, this has got to be our most comforting. When you cook with hummus, it provides an excellent, creamy base for whatever you’re making. When we’re talking soup – it’s just heavenly. Roast cauliflower, and blend it with humus for a truly tasty soup that warms you up from the inside-out.
4. Vegan Wrapped Jalapeno Peppers
When most people think of healthy food, they think boring. This simply isn’t the case. These vegan jalapeno peppers are almost sinful, they’re so delicious. Our Sriracha Hummus provides a kick of flavor everyone will enjoy. Make these for your next get-together, and we guarantee you’ll have people asking for the recipe.
5. Dark Chocolate Cookie Dough S’Mores Dip
Dark chocolate, cookie dough, and s’mores? All in one recipe? Why, yes. This delectable dessert is made using our unique Dark Chocolate Hummus.
