Hummus is quite easily one of the Middle East’s well known dips. Here in Ghana, this chickpea delicacy is usually a great accompaniment to pita bread but that’s not all it can be used for. With little to no effort, you and your family can enjoy Hummus in completely new and exciting ways.
With your sandwich: Dry sandwiches are no fun. Any sandwich lover will tell you that when it comes to the bread based delights, the juicier the better. Instead of the mayo or the butter that you are used to, you can try hummus. It is filled with lots of protein and combining it with your meat or salad fillings bring on a burst of flavor that you will really appreciate. Spread hummus on your bread before adding your filling or mix it up with the filling before it goes in the bread. Whichever way, you’ll appreciate the taste.
With Mashed Potatoes: Thinking of a different way to eat your potatoes than fried? Well you should try making some mashed potatoes. Don’t worry if you don’t have any cream, hummus is here to help. Replace the cream with hummus when making mashed potatoes for more flavor and guess what? It has fewer calories. That’s right, this is one substitute you’ll be glad you tried.
With Your Veggies: I bet you’ve never thought to mix up this Middle Eastern dip with your salad right? Well why not? Hummus has lemon juice and olive oil which are prime components of salad dressing. To make your hummus suitable for your salads and cooked veggies, add 1/3 cup of olive oil, 3 tablespoons of white wine vinegar and 1 tablespoon of sesame oil and your flavor-filled salad dressing is ready.
With Your Chicken: It is safe to say chicken has more fans than otherwise and we are thrilled to let you know that hummus goes well with it. You can spice up a piece of grilled chicken breast by smearing hummus on it for some added texture. Bake the chicken at 400ºF for about 12-15 minutes until it is well done.
Hummus is a great source of protein, healthy fats and calcium and you can enjoy hummus in more ways than one. Get creative with it. Check out our recipe book to learn how to make hummus for dinner this weekend. The family will love it!
