What is hummus? Typically it is a paste of ground chickpeas and sesame seeds, olive oil, lemon, and garlic, made originally in the Middle East. I have made dips from black beans, white beans, edamame and more- but I really only call it hummus if it is made from chickpeas. Hummus is perfect on it’s own with some soft pita or pretzels but is amazing as a salad dressing base, sauce on pizza, sandwich spread and so much more!
On my favorite pizza…
On a burger…
Or in a Bowl With Veggies and Chicken…
One of the best things about hummus, besides the fact that it is amazingly delicious, is that it is very adaptable. As a marinade, as a dip, as a drizzle for veggies- you get the idea.
Here are a few ways a few of my friends use hummus:
One easy way to integrate Sabra Hummus into your menu is by making this simple quesadilla. I used the Olive Tapenade Hummus. It is a creamy combination of diced olives and smooth hummus. Smear some of this on a hearty tortilla, layer on the cooked chicken, sweet peppers, tomatoes and feta, then heat to perfection. Not only is this a crowd pleaser, but it is a complete meal. Even better- it is amazingly simple. I believe that when you start with good ingredients that you can make a simple dish shine.
Sabra Hummus- Olive Tapanade
Sweet peppers, sliced thin
Cooked chicken breast slices
Layer ingredients on 1 tortillas and top with tortilla.
Heat in pan until tortilla is crispy and cheese is melty.
Remove from pan, slice and serve.
I adore Sabra Hummus and they are a friend of Basilmomma.com but like all of my posts, all opinions are my own. Wen the dipping is done and you have used hummus in one of these fabulous recipes- head to their site to get more information AND your coupon for #HummusDay!
