On your way to a party or get-together? Maybe a picnic? Perhaps you’re at home and need something to snack on.
Or you’re at work and need a quick pick-me-up. Instead of reaching for more of the same old snacks, try a tub of HOPE Kale Pesto hummus for an unusually tasteful Mediterranean blend. Made with super-healthy extra virgin olive oil, organic kale and basil for full-bodied flavor, our hummus pesto is a big hit wherever it goes.
A Time-Honored Italian Sauce
Pesto, a dish made with olive oil, basil, pine nuts, and Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, is a time-honored Italian dip, spread, and sauce. It is hard to find people who don’t exclaim over its buttery yet fresh flavor. And as we know, humus is another traditional food hailing from the Middle east, with an earthy tartness traditionally derived from garbanzo beans, tahini, olive oil, lemon, and garlic. And as luck would have it, we found that these two flavors combine to perfection–and lo, our pesto hummus recipe was born! Free of nuts and dairy to keep our product as vegan and allergen-free as possible, our rogue flavor creators found a way to honor the traditions of the past while crafting something entirely new.
Pesto Hummus Recipe Ideas
While this hummus pesto combo serves well as a dip for bread or veggies, we just had to put it to the “pasta test”… because what good is this famous dip if it doesn’t go well with pasta? If you’re looking for a healthy, lower-fat and protein-rich pasta without having to sacrifice flavor, try one of these neat ideas:
: an invigorating, wholly vegan treat featuring zucchini noodles topped with our hummus pesto, fresh spinach or kale, brussels sprouts, garlic, and even a dash of raw maple syrup! Serves 2 with 35 minutes’ prep, and it’s a fresh and fun twist on an old favorite.
Penne with Roasted Tomatoes
: For a more classic version of hummus pesto pasta, try this savory blend of chickpea pasta noodles, heirloom tomatoes, our pesto hummus recipe, and salt and pepper. A simple recipe for home or for friends, this dish takes only 25 minutes to prepare a meal for 4.
We dare you to take the pesto hummus dip challenge! We’re betting you’ll find yourself amongst our many satisfied fans. Our pesto hummus recipe is a fan favorite, and we didn’t have to get wacky to invent it… it’s just a perfect combination of two well-loved foods. We think of it like peanut-butter and jelly, chocolate and strawberries, coffee and cream: They belong together.
