33 Easy & Unexpected Hummus Recipes (That Go Beyond Just Dip)
If there were a yearbook superlative for “most versatile food,” chickpeas would garner the nomination, hands down. The beige beans are the most widely consumed legume in the world. We consider them a staple for their high protein content, soft, nutty flavor and ability to upgrade every chip and carrot stick in our favorite form of all: hummus.
But did you know you can also make tacos with the creamy spread? Or use it on chicken skewers? And who better to lead the charge than Sabra, our grocery-store go-to. Here, 30+ easy and unexpected hummus recipes (that go way beyond just dip).
Psst, don't be afraid to swap ingredients for what's available to you right now. Experimenting is half the fun.
Creative Ways to Use Hummus
