Hummus as an Ingredient

While hummus is a great dip or sandwich spread, hounds also use it as an ingredient.

"I always make tuna salad with hummus rather than mayo, as I can't stand mayo," says rockycat. "I add hummus to the tuna until it's just a little thicker than I would like, then mix in some fresh lemon juice, maybe a good shot of sriracha, and some chopped scallions."

"I love the combination of hummus and rice. Sometimes, for an easy weeknight meal, I make rice, hummus, and sautéed spicy sausages, onions, and peppers with cumin and red chile peppers," says pamelak52. alitria tosses it with penne, sun-dried tomatoes, and sautéed spinach "to make a dairy-free pasta sauce that has a creamy sort of taste and feel," she says.

HillJ uses hummus to bind the rice and meat filling for stuffed peppers, and also spreads it over a head of cauliflower, sprinkles generously with curry powder, and bakes until tender. pine time adds a scoop to meatloaf, and powella coats chicken breasts with hummus, then adds a squeeze of lemon juice, chopped fresh rosemary, sliced lemons, and a drizzle of balsamic vinegar before baking. "Absolutely delicious," she says.
