Being that May 15th was National Hummus Day, and I love hummus it felt natural to do TV segment sharing the awesome ways to use hummus. You know, other than the obvious carrots and pita. Don’t get me wrong, I have baby carrots and hummus in my fridge most of the time, for a quick snack, but it is fun to see the different ways to use what is a healthy, filling alternative to mayonnaise.
I shared my recipe for grilled vegetable flat bread with hummus. I also shared a recipe from my friend, Heather from Farmgirl Gourmet. She is also a Sabra Tastemaker and her recipe for falafel using hummus is delicious.
Here is the recipe for the deviled eggs I shared, it’s from the Sabra website, where you can find a gang of awesome ways to use hummus, other than dipping. A pretty cool way to use it, is making a pasta sauce with it too, I’ll be sharing that recipe in the coming weeks, but you can see a snap shot of it in the AM Northwest segment. It was tasty, unique, and healthy.
Some other classic, but more interesting ways to use hummus instead of mayo is on sandwiches, wraps, and as a sauce. For more ways to use Sabra hummus, check out their Facebook page too. It’s full of great recipes!
