Hummus is one of the best dip options because it's full of flavor and nutrition. Whether you're looking for a healthier alternative to your favorite dips or just love the taste of chickpeas, there's no denying that this Mediterranean staple has found a place in many hearts (and stomachs). If you're looking for a new recipe to try or just curious about different ways to make hummus, look no further. This list of five delicious recipes has something for everyone.
Eating healthy snacks keeps you balanced between meals and sustains your energy throughout the day. By taking the time to meal prep your snacks in advance, you can set yourself up for success by having healthy, balanced snacks ready to go whenever you get the munchies.
1 can (15 oz) chickpeas, drained and rinsed
3 tbsp tahini sauce
2 tbsp lemon juice
1 clove of garlic, minced
1 tsp cumin powder
Salt and pepper, to taste
Extra virgin olive oil, for drizzling (optional)
Paprika, for garnish (optional)
1. Add all ingredients except olive oil and paprika into a food processor or blender.
2. Blend until smooth, stopping to scrape down the sides as necessary.
3. Taste and adjust seasoning as necessary.
4. Serve with a drizzle of olive oil and a sprinkle of paprika, if desired.
Roasted Beet Hummus
Sneak in more nutrition and have a pretty pink hummus to serve. You'll want to roast your beets in the oven at 400°F/204°C for 60 minutes. Wrap them in foil first so they get the perfect texture without burning on the outside. After they cool, you'll remove the skins and chop them into chunks so you can add them to the blender with the ingredients mentioned in the traditional recipe above.
Spicy Sweet Curry Hummus
An easy way to change traditional hummus is by adding ground turmeric, curry powder, cayenne pepper, and some freshly grated ginger. To balance the heat, add a little pure maple syrup.
Roasted Garlic Hummus
Traditional hummus has garlic, but roasted garlic adds another dimension to the flavor. You'll want to roast your garlic at 400°F/204°C for this recipe. Drizzle it with olive oil and seal it in foil, roasting for 60 minutes. The garlic will need to cool first, but once it does, you can add it right into your hummus recipe for an extra punch of flavor.
Sweet Potato Hummus
Even more nutritious, adding roasted sweet potatoes to your hummus is about as delicious as it gets. It's the perfect fall appetizer for your next gathering. You'll roast the sweet potatoes at 400°F/204°C until fork-tender, usually about an hour. The sweet potatoes will need to cool completely. Once they do, you can peel them and cut them into chunks. Pop it into the blender with the rest of the hummus ingredients, and enjoy. Or give it a sweeter flavor with a hint of cinnamon and maple syrup.
If you can't decide which hummus to make, you can always make them all. There's nothing like an array of healthy hummus dips to dunk fresh veggies into while gathered in good company.
