Let’s be sincere: Making homemade hummus sounds difficult. Or rather, it’s difficult to make hummus that’s similarly as good as store-bought variations. And where there are garbanzo beans, there are ways to make scrumptious, better-than-restaurant style hummus.
Simply toss the components in the mixer, blend on low speed till whatever combines, increase the speed up until the hummus is smooth, and ta-da! It’s the homemade hummus you have actually always dreamed of.
The bad news? This dish does suggest soaking and peeling dry chickpeas and credits the amazing texture to this timely technique. The great news is you don’t have to fire-roast your own peppers. Store-bought is a-OK and the former action is actually way simpler than it sounds. A light drizzle of chili oil on the end product makes it look (and taste) like a real culinary work of art.
Why eat hummus and guacamole separately when you can eat them together? OK, this recipe doesn’t exactly mix the two cult dips, however it does combine the very best of both worlds. Just select your poison– pita, tortilla chips, or veggies– and enjoy this ultra-creamy Mediterranean/Mexican paradise. Pro suggestion: Drain the salsa prior to topping off the hummus so the dip does not get watery.
This hummus is whatever amazing about the whatever bagel without the brick it leaves in your stomach. Reward points for scooping the dip with bagel chips.
This nearly neon dip is packed with both vitamins and flavor. The taste is subtle enough to calm beet haters but strong enough to encourage any cup that classic hummus can beet it– temporarily, at least.
Think it or not, hummus isn’t all about chickpeas. The walnut gives the dip a heartier taste and texture, and the roasted carrots soften and sweet the taste to excellence.
Do you consider hummus the main star, not the understudy? This dish is flexible enough to be both, and the included veggies, fruit, and extra love make it the perfect lunch or dinner. Heck, toss a poached egg on it for breakfast. Even better? You can experiment to your heart’s content. We like playing with proteins, roasted veggies, nuts, and cheeses. And inform your moms and dads it’s real: Chips and dip really is a healthy meal.
Meet the healthier version of cheesy spinach dip. Spinach, feta, pine nuts, and dill blend with the usual hummus suspects (chickpeas, tahini, lemon) to develop a decadent dip that feels like a splurge but is vice versa. We also like using it as a sandwich spread or stand-in salad dressing.
Beans are delicious (and healthy), but let’s admit it: They’re not the most convenient to absorb. Which, in specific bodies, can result in bloating and gas. That’s where zucchini is available in. This hummus is simply as creamy, thick, and delicious as chickpea-based recipes however is paleo-friendly and bean-free. For an extra punch, add a dash of cumin.
White beans are another terrific way to change up hummus. You can even go top and wild this hummus with roasted chicken.
You may be doubtful of dessert hummus, but trust us, it deserves it. Sweetened with cashew butter, maple syrup, brown sugar, and cinnamon, the chickpeas act as the ideal protein base for this cookie dough-inspired dip. Be cautioned: It’s as addicting as the name suggests.
